When calculating the updated electricity forecast balance, the Ministry of Energy of Ukraine does not consider the import of a resource from the Russian Federation and Belarus, First Deputy Energy Minister Yuriy Vlasenko has said.
“When calculating the forecast balance, we do not envisage the import of electricity from Russia and Belarus,” he said on the margins of the energy forum in Kyiv, organized by Energy club, on Wednesday.
At the same time, he drew attention to the fact that imports are prohibited until October 1, but are not considered in the future.
At the same time, Vlasenko said that a feature of this autumn-winter period will be the operation of the Integrated Power System, as well as Burshtyn TPP energy island in an isolated mode, providing for their disconnection from all power systems.
“We need to work this way for three days in winter and summer. As for winter, we are also working on it with Ukrenergo, when we will work in an isolated mode – in late January or early February,” Vlasenko said.
