Ukraine Plans to Boost Electricity Exports amid Mild Weather

Ukraine’s energy ministry in an official statement revealed plans to ramp up electricity exports on Tuesday, capitalizing on decreased domestic consumption spurred by mild weather conditions.

This move marks a significant shift since halting exports following Russian attacks on its power infrastructure and the seizure of key facilities, including the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant.

Despite previous setbacks, Ukraine recently exported notable volumes of electricity to Eastern Europe, indicating a resurgence in its energy export capabilities.

“For the current day, electricity imports are forecast to reach 1,490 megawatt hours (MWh), while exports are expected to reach 3,900 MWh,” the ministry said in a statement.

“There is no electricity shortage, the power system has sufficient generation reserves.”

With lower consumption levels expected to persist into the spring, Ukraine foresees a resurgence in energy exports, potentially bolstering its position as a key electricity supplier in the region.

Energy Minister German Galushchenko told Reuters last month that Ukraine could resume substantial energy exports as early as this spring due to lower consumption.
