  • Situation in the energy system as of 19 May
    Ministry of Energy of Ukraine, posted 19 May 2024 10:42

    In Donetsk region, power companies were hit by an enemy drone; the Ministry of Energy appeals to consumers to conserve energy.


    Yesterday, consumers' needs were covered by domestic generation, commercial imports and emergency assistance from the power systems of Romania, Slovakia and Poland.

    During the daytime, Ukraine provided emergency assistance to Poland by receiving surplus electricity from the country's power system. Ukraine is also expected to receive surplus electricity from Poland this afternoon.

    From 18:00 to 24:00, restrictions were imposed on industrial consumers in all regions except Kherson region. At that, electricity supply to household consumers was not restricted.

    At Ukraine's request, Romania, Slovakia and Poland have already provided emergency electricity supplies at night and in the morning. Emergency assistance is also available during the evening peak hours of electricity consumption.


    No restrictions are planned for today, but the Ministry of Energy appeals to consumers to consume electricity in an economical and responsible manner. This is important for balancing the power system and stabilising energy supply.

    It is critical to reduce the use of energy-intensive appliances during peak hours (especially in the evening from 17:00 to 22:00).

    Industrial consumers are asked to use imports to the maximum extent possible to avoid outages and strengthen the resilience of the power system.


    In Donetsk region, a brigade of power engineers came under attack from an attack by an enemy Lancet while carrying out repairs.

    Fortunately, no one was injured.

    The workers stopped work and left the site.


    In Donetsk region, the hostilities caused the disconnection of one of the overhead lines of a regional power company, which cut off power to a substation and the household consumers connected to it.

    As a result of damage to gas pipelines caused by hostile shelling, gas supply was cut off to 267 customers in Sumy region and 68 customers in Kharkiv region.


    For the current day, electricity imports are forecast at 13,159 MWh.

    No exports are expected.
