Ukraine’s energy system is stable and ready to start exporting electricity to Europe – DTEK Executive Director

One month of a full-scale war in Ukraine proved to be the most difficult for the country’s energy sector in 30 years of its independence. Nevertheless, the country’s energy system is stable and ready to start exporting electricity to Europe. DTEK Executive Director Dmytro Saharuk said this during his briefing at Ukraine Media Center.

At the same time, despite active warfare and significant destruction, Ukraine’s energy system has enough capacity to export electricity to Europe. This will help reduce the deficit of funds faced by energy companies due to the war. Energy consumption decreased by 30% and the total amount of payments – by 70% during one month of hostilities.

«That is why we want to start economic relations with Europe in the energy sector as soon as possible after the synchronization. This will make it possible to support the energy system during these extremely difficult times,» – Mr. Sakharuk indicated.  

As reported earlier, the Ukrainian energy grid joined the EU energy system on March 16 after three weeks of autonomous work.
