SEIA-EBRD Seminar on Policies to Attract Commercial Investment to Meet Ukraine's GHG Commitments

Kiev, Ukraine
19 November 2012
Hosted By: the State Environmental Investment Agency (SEIA) of Ukraine and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD)

The State Environmental Investment Agency (SEIA) of Ukraine and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) hosted a seminar in Kiev on 19 November 2012 to investigate how to attract commercial investment to meet Ukraine's greenhouse gas (GHG) commitments.

NERA Associate Director Daniel Radov presented the results of a multi-firm study for the EBRD that was led by NERA. The study is entitled "The Demand for Greenhouse Gas Emissions Reduction Investments: An Investors' Marginal Abatement Cost Curve for Ukraine."

Mr. Radov discussed the results of the team's extensive modeling work, specifically undertaken for Ukraine, which simulates carbon abatement opportunities from an investor's perspective. Using marginal abatement cost curves, he reviewed different abatement measures and their costs in all major sectors of the Ukrainian economy. Mr. Radov demonstrated how different policy scenarios influence the cost of abatement and gave an outlook for different GHG emissions pathways in Ukraine.
