    No electricity shortage, heat supply partially disrupted in Kyiv and Mykolaiv due to shelling

    Power generation and consumption

    There is no shortage of electricity in the power system of Ukraine. Domestic generation fully covers the needs of consumers. Commercial electricity imports are also planned.

    A TPP unit has been brought out of emergency repair. Seven units of thermal power plants are in reserve and will be used if necessary.

    The situation is under control. The system is balanced. No outage schedules are applied.

    Consequences of shelling

    Yesterday, as a result of hostile attacks, a section of the heating network in Kyiv was disconnected, leaving 355 residential buildings, 5 hospitals, 18 kindergartens, 9 schools and 84 departmental buildings without heat supply. Restoration works are ongoing.

    Further hostile attacks damaged heating networks in Mykolaiv, leaving 9 residential buildings without heating.

    A resulting fire left 82 household consumers in the city centre without electricity – all of them were quickly reconnected, except for the destroyed building. Overhead power lines in the region were also damaged, which resulted in a power outage in 9 settlements in the region – as of the morning, all consumers have been reconnected. Grid repairs are currently underway.

    State of the grid

    For technical reasons, an overhead power line in Lviv region was disconnected. As a result, household consumers and the railway lost power (there were no disruptions to train traffic). All consumers were supplied with power via the main grid.

    Due to a technological malfunction, equipment at a substation in Dnipropetrovsk region was disconnected, which resulted in power outages for household consumers and local industry. All consumers were supplied with power according to the main scheme.

    Situation at the ZNPP

    The water level in the cooling pond is 15.59 metres. This is sufficient to meet the plant’s needs.


    For the current day, electricity imports are forecasted at 7,274 MWh. It is also planned to export up to 1,859 MWh.
