Russian NPPs exceeded the state task of the FAS Russia by almost 4.5% in April 2023

Russian nuclear power plants (branches of Rosenergoatom, the Electric Power Division of Rosatom) generated over 71.8 billion kilowatt-hours or 104.49% of the balance target* of the Federal Antimonopoly Service (FAS) of Russia in four months of 2023.

Therefore, more than 3 billion kWh have been generated since the beginning of the year in excess of the balance target. The generation in April amounted to about 18.3 billion kilowatt-hours of electricity. The operation of all Russian NPPs over the four months of 2023 made it possible to prevent emissions of greenhouse gases into the atmospheric air in the amount of more than 35 million tons of CO2 equivalent.

At the moment the construction of new power units of the Kursk NPP-2 under the PWR-TOI project is underway, as well as work on the construction of new power units No. 7, 8 of the Leningrad NPP and No. 1, 2 of the Smolensk NPP-2. Besides, a power unit with a fast reactor BREST-300 is being built in Seversk (the Tomsk region) as part of the Proryv project to create a new technological platform, as well as two modernized low-power floating power units (MLFPU) for Chukotka. The plans of nuclear scientists include the construction of other nuclear facilities, including a small ground station in the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia).

Today, the share of electricity generation by nuclear power plants in the energy balance of Russia is about 20%, and by 2045 it should reach 25%. This instruction was given to Rosatom State Corporation by the President of Russia. The development of nuclear technologies, the construction of new NPP units in Russia means new jobs, improving the quality of life for people in the satellite towns of nuclear power plants.

For reference:

Today, Russia continues to provide stable energy security. The domestic fuel and energy complex works to increase the competitiveness of the national economy, contributes to the development and improvement of the country's regions, cities, towns, to improve the quality of life of citizens. The share of low-carbon power generation in the Russian energy sector is already about 40%. In the future, taking into account the growth in the share of nuclear generation, it will only grow.

* The annual balance target of the FAS Russia for the generation of power and heat is formed for each power plant based on the forecasted generation of electricity and heat by all power plants in the country, taking into account their operating modes, repairs, external restrictions and other factors, as well as taking into account the forecast mode of consumption of electricity and heat.
