Ukrainian energy system has enough capacity to export electricity to Europe – DTEK top manager
The start of Ukrainian electricity exports to Europe will help support the domestic energy system, which has enough capacity and capabilities to implement it, Dmytro Sakharuk, the executive director of DTEK Energy Holding, said. He calls for the earliest possible resumption of electricity exports.
“There is enough capacity in the Ukrainian system to start exporting to Europe. It will be very important to attract such necessary funds to the Ukrainian energy sector, which is now acutely lacking,” he stated. According to him, during the month of the war electricity consumption fell by 30%, and payments for the consumed resource — by 70%. Thus, each euro received for electricity export will be critical to support the energy system.
