Electricity exports to Poland increased by 35% in April
Ukraine will help Europe to abandon the consumption of Russian coal and reduce the consumption of Russian gas, the Prime Minister said.
Until the end of the year, Ukraine plans to expand the possibilities of energy companies to export electricity to the European Union. About it said Prime Minister Denys Shmygal at a government meeting on Tuesday, May 24.
He recalled that in mid-March Ukraine joined the European ENTSO-E network ahead of schedule and is already exporting its electricity to Europe.
According to Shmyhal, electricity exports to Poland increased by 35% in April compared to pre-war January.
“By the end of the year, we plan to expand the capabilities of Ukrainian energy companies, and we will be able to export about 800 MW of electricity per day to the EU. This will help Europe to abandon the consumption of Russian coal and reduce the consumption of Russian gas,” the Prime Minister said.
Earlier it became known that Ukraine offers Europe electricity in exchange for gas. Such supplies will also help offset the Ukrainian budget deficit, said President Volodymyr Zelensky.
