Electricity deficiency in Ukraine can be prevented, said DTEK CEO Maxim Timchenko at a press conference held on November 9.
There are four ways to overcome the deficit of 5.5 billion kWh of electricity:
- It is necessary to import 1 mln tons of coal at Centerenergo, which will make it possible to generate 2 bln kWh; the price of this electricity, based on the current quotations of $150 per ton of coal in Amsterdam, is ₴4 for 1 kWh
- The second way is the operation of a TPP on a mix of coal and gas, at which the price of 1 kWh will be ₴33.
- The third opportunity is to cover the electricity deficit in the Kyiv CHPP-5 and CHPP-6 and the Kharkiv CHPP-5 using gas. The price of electricity will be ₴5 per 1 kWh at a gas price of ₴26,000 per 1 cubic meter without VAT.
- The fourth method is the import of electricity from Belarus. “If we can get 400 MW, this will give us about 1.5 billion kWh for the entire autumn-winter period.
