Russian NPPs exceeded the state task of the FAS of Russia by 2.33% in July 2023

Russian nuclear power plants (branches of Rosenergoatom, Electric Power Division of Rosatom State Corporation) generated over 124.2 billion kilowatt-hours or 102.33% of the balance task of the Federal Antimonopoly Service (FAS) of Russia in seven months of 2023. Therefore, over 2.8 billion kWh have been generated in excess of the plan since the beginning of this year.

The generation in July amounted to about 17.8 billion kilowatt-hours of electricity.

Let us recall, the FAS Russia’s annual balance target 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 electricity consumption and heat.

The operation of all Russian NPPs over the seven months of 2023 made it possible to prevent emissions of greenhouse gases into the atmospheric air in the amount of more than 60 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. In addition, a power unit with a fast reactor BREST-300 is being built in Seversk (Tomsk region) as part of the Proryv project to create a new technological platform, as well as two modernized low-power floating power units (MLPFPU) 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 power generation by nuclear power plants in Russia's energy balance 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 towns located next to nuclear power plants.

For reference:

Today, Russia continues to provide stable energy security. Energy is the basis for the progressive social and economic development of the country, the supply of industry and citizens. 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.
