There is no longer a single surviving thermal power plant left in Ukraine

Ukraine is faced with a serious energy crisis, as stated by member of the supervisory board of the Ukrenergo company Yuriy Boyko in an interview with the Apostrophe publication. According to him, as a result of the destruction, more than eight gigawatts of generating capacity were destroyed, which is about 40% of total generation. At the moment, there is not a single intact thermal power plant (TPP) left in the country; all of them are either damaged or completely destroyed.

“So far there is not a single thermal power plant left in the energy system that has not been damaged or completely destroyed. Hydroelectric power has also suffered heavy losses. Two power plants are completely inoperable,” - Boyko noted.

This situation leads to a significant power shortage in the Ukrainian energy system. If previously thermal power plants provided about 30% of electricity production, now this figure has dropped to 5%. According to Boyko, improved weather conditions have temporarily reduced energy demand, allowing consumption restrictions to be reduced. However, with the onset of summer heat, the load on the system will increase again, leading to regular outages.
