Rosenergoatom Concern was included in the 2016 top three power generating companies based on their market efficiency

Based on the results of the 4th quarter, as well as 2016 in general Rosenergoatom Concern took second place in the “Power generating companies – the market efficiency” ranking that was composed by Nonprofit Partnership Council for Organizing Efficient System of Trading at Wholesale and Retail Electricity and Capacity Market (NP Market Council)*.

It is to be recalled that Rosenergoatom took a leading place in rankings for two years – in 2014 and 2015.

At determining the leaders of the industry the data on 73 power generating companies and enterprises was used.

Within the framework of companies’ market operating efficiency analysis the NP Market Council evaluates the rankings of the RF constituent entities and participants of wholesale and retail markets of electric energy.

Power generating companies ranking is traditionally composed every quarter and is based on the results of the year, which allows to access and compare the efficiency of power generating companies against the following parameters: maintenance of generating equipment’s good working condition, load efficiency, unit cost, profit per unit produced.

The leaders are determined on the basis of the listed factors with account of weight coefficients - generating equipment’s good working condition (weight coefficient – 35%); capacity factor (weight coefficient – 15%); unit cost of 1 MWh of electric energy (weight coefficient -25%); profit per unit of 1 MWh of generation (weight coefficient – 25%).

*NP Market Council was established in compliance with the Federal Law from 4 November 2007 No 250-FZ “On Introducing Amendments to Certain Legislative Acts of the Russian Federation in Connection with the Implementation of Measures for Reforming the Power System of Russia”.
