In Ukraine, electricity production has slightly increased, but the deficit remains significant, reports NEC “Ukrenergo”.

“Electricity consumption is at the level of Monday. Electricity production has slightly increased. The capacity deficit remains significant,” the message says.

The company explained that the deficit is related to the fact that as a result of Russian missile and drone attacks, power plants (generating capacities) and the high-voltage network were damaged. The last Russian attack on January 14 caused significant damage to several power units of thermal power plants. Electricity production at operating power plants cannot fully cover consumption.

Consumption limits valid during the day have been established for all oblenergos. Exceeding the limits leads to risks of emergency situations in the power system. Therefore, emergency shutdowns are used to prevent them.

“Thanks to the fact that Ukrenergo restored the 330 kV line, the reliability of the output of one of the power plants in the southeast of the country increased,” the company said.

“Ukrenergo”, electricity producers and oblenergo are constantly working to restore damaged facilities affected by enemy attacks. However, after each subsequent attack by the Russians on the energy infrastructure, recovery becomes increasingly difficult and takes longer

The situation with the energy system in Ukraine: details

Ukraine’s energy system has already survived 12 enemy missile attacks and 14 UAV strikes on energy facilities. In addition, more than 10 GW of the main installed capacities are still inaccessible to the Ukrainian energy system and are under the control of the enemy. This is the largest in Ukraine and Europe: Zaporizhzhia NPP, Zaporizhzhia TPP, Luhansk TPP, Vuglehirskaya TPP, Kakhovskaya HPP.

Yesterday, electricity consumption in Ukraine increased against the background of the beginning of the working week and the cold weather, emergency power outages were applied in five regions.

The deficit in Kyiv’s power system remains significant. Power outage schedules continue to operate in the capital.
