    No power shortage, one coal mine in Donetsk region de-energised due to shelling

    Power generation and consumption

    No electricity deficit has been recorded and is not expected for the current day. Electricity generated in Ukraine is sufficient to meet the needs of household consumers and industry. Commercial electricity imports are also taking place.

    TPPs and CHPPs in the eastern regions were offline for technical reasons. TPPs have already resumed operation.

    Three units of thermal power plants in different regions are undergoing short-term emergency repairs.

    These situations do not affect the supply of electricity to consumers. The situation is under control. The power system is balanced. There are no restrictions on electricity supply in any region.

    State of the grid

    In Lviv region, a 110 kV overhead line was disconnected. Agricultural enterprises, household consumers and the railway were without power (trains were disrupted). The line was reconnected within half an hour and consumers were supplied with electricity.

    Consequences of the shelling

    One coal mine in Donetsk region was de-energised as a result of hostilities. There are no workers trapped in the mine.

    Situation at the ZNPP

    The water level in the cooling pond is 15.64 metres. This is sufficient to meet the needs of the plant.


    Electricity imports amounted to 4,981 MWh. There were no exports.
