    Ukraine wants to expand electricity exports to neighbouring countries

    June 30, 2022 - dpa English


      Kiev (dpa) - Ukraine has started exporting electricity to Romania after joining the European electricity grid.

      "The starting quantity is 100 megawatts," Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal wrote on his Telegram channel on Thursday.

      The 46-year-old head of government estimated the export potential at 2.5 gigawatts. This would enable the financially strapped country to earn the equivalent of almost ?1.9 billion ($2 billion) a year.

      According to data from the state electricity grid operator Ukrenerho, Kiev already exports 210 megawatts to Poland and 142 megawatts to Moldova.

      Ukraine had disconnected from the former Soviet power grid at the end of February and, together with Moldova, synchronized with the European power grid in March.

      Last week, Ukrainian Energy Minister Herman Halushchenko offered Germany the export of Ukrainian nuclear power. Four Soviet-designed nuclear power plants account for more than half of Ukraine's electricity production.
