Rosenergoatom: in January Russian NPPs increased generation level by 2.1% - up to 19.4 bn kW⋅h

In January, 2021 power generation on Russian nuclear power plants (branches of Rosenergoatom, Rosatom Electric Power Division) increased by 2.1 % over last year January – almost to the level of 19.4 bn kW⋅h.

The Federal Antimonopoly Service (FAS Russia) targets were exceeded by 3.4 %. According to the experts, this excess allowed to lower inflation of the electricity consumer price by about 2%.
As mentioned previously, 2020 ended for Russian NPPs with an absolute power generation record over the entire history of Russian nuclear power industry - 215.746 bn kW⋅h of electricity. Over the past year, NPPs operation prevented emission of 108.3 million tons of greenhouse gases.

Currently, 37 power units with a total installed capacity of about 29.4 GW are running on 11 operating nuclear power plants in Russia, including the floating nuclear power plant (FNPP). In 2021, power unit No. 6 of the Leningrad NPP with a VVER-1200 reactor is being prepared for commissioning.

The share of Russian nuclear power plants in the country's energy balance has grown and is now 20.28%. Thus, every fifth lightbulb in the Russian Federation is lighted with the electricity generated by nuclear power plants.
