Without a doubt, the most important reforms in Ukraine have been in the gas sector, ending the dependence on direct sales from Russia and sharply reducing its budget deficit. This is the best-known story in Ukraine's energy sector, but by no means the only one.

The Atlantic Council’s Dinu Patriciu Eurasia Center and Global Energy Center will bring together top energy experts and policymakers to discuss the status of the Ukrainian energy sector in a series of thematic panels. The discussion will begin with a talk on the state of the hydrocarbon industry and will segue to an exchange on the development, challenges, and way forward for the electricity, coal and nuclear sectors in Ukraine.

We hope you can join us for this timely discussion.
