The total production of electricity from solar and wind power plants last week decreased by 4% (to 222.3 million kWh versus 231 million kWh), and the daily indicator ranged from almost 29.8 million kWh (July 16) to 35.1 million kWh (July 15). SPPs produced the biggest amount of electricity on July 15 – 29.4 million kWh, and wind farms – on July 13 (10.8 million kWh).
Dispatch commands to limit the wind farms and solar power stations during the week were not given.
In just a week, the share of SPPs and wind farms in the structure of electricity production did not change compared to the previous period and amounted to 9%. At the same time, as of July 19, since the beginning of the month, renewable energy sources have generated 658.1 million kWh, which is 4.3% more than the forecast balance. At the same time, SPPs produced by 5.2% more than the forecast, and wind farms – by 3.8%.
The average daily production at nuclear power plants over June 13-19 compared to the previous week increased by almost 2.2% (from 185.8 million kWh to 189.9 million kWh). The total load of the nuclear power plants during the whole week was 7.9 GW. The total electricity production of the nuclear power plant on July 13-19, according to operational data, amounted to 1.33 billion kWh. The share of nuclear power plants in the overall structure of production was 53%, which is 3% more than in the previous week.
There were no restrictions on the capacity of the NPPs by the dispatch center.
As of July 19, there were two nuclear power units in reserve, three are undergoing repairs and another 10 are in operation.
Since the beginning of the month, nuclear power plants have produced almost 3.52 billion kWh, which is 5% more than the forecast balance.
The total electricity production at HPPs during the last week was 125 million kWh (against 122.7 million kWh in the previous week). At the same time, the average daily electricity production at hydroelectric power stations increased by 1.9% (from 17.5 million kWh to 17.9 million kWh). In general, since the beginning of July, HPPs have generated 365.6 million kWh, which is 45.5% more than the forecast balance.
Pumped storage power plants produced 30 million kWh during the week, and since the beginning of the month – 82.6 million kWh, which is 6.1% more than the forecast balance. The share of HPPs and PSPPs on July 13-19 was 6% of total production.
Electricity production at TPPs during the specified period amounted to 592.2 million kWh against 689 million kWh in the previous week. The share of thermal power plants in production during the last week decreased to 23% (against 26% in the previous week).
Since the beginning of the month, TPPs have produced a little more than 1.82 billion kWh, which is 6.1% less than the forecast balance.
