After Russia invaded Ukraine on 24 February, electricity demand in Ukraine plummeted dramatically and has continued to decline as the war has raged.
- Ukraine’s electricity demand has fallen by about 40% since Russia’s invasion with no sign of recovery. Demand keeps decreasing slowly every week.
- The resulting decline in power generation has mainly taken place in nuclear. But coal-fired generation has also decreased.
ENERGO, the Ukrainian national power company, continues to provide electricity data. Entso-e, the European Network of Transmission System Operators for Electricity, provided a more detailed breakdown of Ukrainian electricity generation by source but was disconnected shortly after the invasion.
