    Ministry of Energy of Ukraine, posted 05 December 2023 11:48

    No power shortage in the system, no electricity restrictions in any region

    Power generation and consumption

    As of 10:00, there is no shortage of electricity in the power system. Due to lower temperatures, consumption may increase during peak hours in the evening. In order to balance the system and meet this demand, additional hydroelectric capacity will be used.

    One TPP unit was taken out of service for emergency repairs. In addition, one TPP unit was briefly shut down for technical reasons, but has since been restored to service.

    The situation in the power system is under control. All outages were caused by adverse weather conditions, technical reasons and hostilities.

    State of the grid

    Due to technical reasons, the equipment at the 330 kV substation of NPC Ukrenergo in Poltava region was de-energised. As a result, household consumers lost power. The power supply was restored within an hour.

    Consequences of shelling

    An overhead power line of a thermal power plant in the frontline region was cut as a result of shelling. The line has since been reconnected.

    Situation at the ZNPP

    The water level in the cooling pond is 15.69 metres. This is sufficient to meet the needs of the plant.


    Electricity imports amounted to 82 MWh. There were no exports.
