    MOSCOW. Aug 2 (Interfax) - Electricity output in Russia's Unified Energy System fell 1% year-on-year in July to 82.5 billion kilowatt-hours, System Operator UES said.

    Thermal power plants generated 42.7 billion kWh, up 1.6%, hydropower plants 17 billion kWh, down 9.9%, nuclear plants 16.9 billion kWh, down 1%, and captive power plants at industrial enterprises 5.4 billion kWh, up 7%.

    Hydropower output fell due to low water in the Yenisei cascade. Combined output by the Sayano-Shushenskaya, Mainskya and Krasnoyarsk HPPs fell 60.4% year-on-year.

    Overall electricity output in Russia fell 1% year-on-year in July to 83.7 billion kWh.

    Output in the UES rose 1.5% year-on-year in January-July to 648.7 billion kWh and in Russia as a whole it rose 1.5% also, to 658.6 billion kWh.

    Power consumption in the UES fell 0.2% year-on-year to 81.9 billion kWh in July.

    Consumption in the UES rose 1.8% year-on-year in 7M 2022 to 638.2 billion kWh and in the country as a whole it rose 1.9% to 648.1 billion kWh.

    Russia's Energy Ministry expects domestic electricity consumption to rise 1.5% this year "if the trends do not change," Energy Minister Nikolai Shulginov said at a meeting with President Vladimir Putin at the beginning of July. "The growth rate has decreased slightly in recent months," he said.
