The Cabinet of Ministers has extended the emergency measures in the electricity market

The Cabinet of Ministers has extended emergency measures in the electricity market for another month.

This was announced by the Minister of Energy and Coal Industry Volodymyr Demchyshyn, the "Ukrainski Novyny" reported.

"It was agreed at the meeting of the Cabinet. The resolution is not signed yet, but the protocol decision was adopted to extend this resolution (for another month)," - Demchyshyn said.

He reminded that the resolution on a temporary state of emergency in the electricity market had been in force for the last 3 months.

Demchyshyn also said that during peak periods, the power consumption deficit of the energy system of Ukraine is 3000 MW.

He said that now about 20 TPP units are being repaired, and their capacity is about 4000 MW

As reported, in August, the Cabinet of Ministers, by the Resolution №764 introduced temporary emergency measures in the electricity market of Ukraine.

In addition, by the Resolution №372 of August 13, the government approved the temporary emergency measures to overcome the effects of prolonged disruption of normal operation in the electricity market.

The need for appropriate measures was the result of hostilities in the Donbas, which resulted in reduction of coal production and its supplies to power stations, which are the main consumers of coal.

Нет угля. Покупать его у террористов преступление, а отправлять террористам газ - это что? Не проще ли потребовать уголь в обмен на газ и не издеваться над своим народом идиотскими отключениями, которые никакой экономии не дают.
