    Ministry of Energy of Ukraine, posted 17 December 2023 12:37

    Situation in the power system as of 17 December: no electricity shortage, a 150 MW unit of one of the TPPs has been restored after overhaul.


    No electricity shortages were recorded yesterday and are not expected for the current day. Electricity generated by Ukrainian power plants is sufficient to meet the needs of consumers. Commercial electricity imports will also be carried out.

    In addition, a unit at one of the TPPs has been overhauled. It will add 150 MW of capacity to the grid.

    During the day, a unit at one of the TPPs was out of service due to technical problems. It has already been brought back into operation.

    No blackout schedules are applied in any of the regions. The situation is under control. The power system is balanced.

    Please consume responsibly! 

    We remind you that it is extremely important to reduce the load on the power system during peak consumption hours (especially in the morning from 9:00 to 11:00 and in the evening from 17:00 to 19:00).

    The Ministry of Energy appeals to consumers to save electricity. Don't use energy-intensive appliances during peak hours - postpone your laundry to the night. This way you will help those who need electricity the most: doctors, utility companies, and the military.

    Condition of power grids

    Due to technological disruptions, equipment at the 330 kV substation of NPC Ukrenergo in Lviv went out of power. At the same time, 110 kV substations in Lviv were partially de-energised. Residential consumers and local industry were left without electricity. All consumers have been supplied with power.

    Consequences of shelling

    One mine in Donetsk region lost power due to the hostilities. 29 workers were brought to the surface.


    A worker without signs of consciousness was found at the workplace at a thermal power plant. Doctors confirmed the victim dead. The circumstances of the accident are being investigated.

    In Dnipropetrovsk region, a contractor's employee injured his leg while performing work at a 330 kV substation. The victim was taken to hospital by ambulance.


    Commercial imports of electricity in the amount of 9,600 MWh are planned for the current day. No exports are planned.
