  • Situation in energy system as of 19 April
    Ministry of Energy of Ukraine, posted 19 April 2024 10:48

    Due to significant damage to power facilities and a drop in temperature, restrictions were imposed on industry; electricity from domestic generation, imports and emergency assistance from neighbouring countries are used to cover the needs of consumers


    Due to network constraints on the transmission system operator’s lines, blackout schedules were applied in Kharkiv region and in Kryvyi Rih, and the restrictions are still in place.

    In addition, due to significant damage to power facilities and a drop in temperature, restrictions were imposed on industrial consumers in all regions except Kherson region yesterday evening (from 18:00 to 22:00).

    Emergency assistance was also provided from Romania, Poland and Slovakia. The amount of electricity supplied was about 3% of the daily electricity consumption.

    As of this morning, emergency assistance from the transmission system operators of these countries is also being mobilised.

    Emergency assistance from neighbouring countries is a standard tool for synchronised power systems. Ukraine, like our partners, also provides emergency assistance when necessary and possible.

    However, given the significant damage caused to the power system by enemy attacks, the sharp drop in temperature and the resulting increase in the load on the power system, it is important to consume electricity reasonably. We ask consumers, both household and industrial, to reduce the use of energy-intensive appliances during peak hours (from 19:00 to 22:00). Industries should review their production processes, import electricity, and provide themselves with alternative power sources if possible.


    The shelling damaged an overhead line in Chernihiv region, which cut off power to 600 consumers.

    In Prykarpattia, an overhead line was damaged by the fall of an enemy drone and household consumers were cut off from electricity. Within an hour, the line was put back into operation and the consumers were supplied with power.


    Due to technical reasons, the interstate overhead line of NPC Ukrenergo in Zakarpattia was briefly disconnected. The line is currently in operation.

    As a result of technological disruptions, equipment at a substation in Khmelnytskyi region was disconnected, thus disconnecting power to about 16,000 household consumers. All consumers have been reconnected.


    The water level in the cooling pond is 15.47 metres. This is sufficient to meet the plant’s needs.


    For the current day, electricity imports are forecasted at 10,900 MWh. No exports are planned.
