Russian nuclear power plants exceeded the state target for electricity generation by 2.26% for 10 months of 2023

Their work during this period made it possible to prevent emissions of more than 87 million tons of CO2 equivalent into the atmosphere

Nuclear power plants in Russia (branches of Rosenergoatom, the Electric Power Division of the Rosatom State Corporation) in ten months of 2023 generated more than 178.1 billion kilowatt-hours of electricity or 102.26% of the balance target of the Federal Antimonopoly Service (FAS) of Russia. Thus, about 4 billion kWh have been generated over the plan since the beginning of this year.

Generation for October amounted to more than 18.8 billion kilowatt-hours.

Let us recall that the annual balance task of the Federal Antimonopoly Service of Russia for the production of electricity and heat is formed for each power plant based on the forecast production 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 regime of electricity consumption and heat.

The operation of all Russian nuclear power plants over the ten months of 2023 made it possible to prevent emissions of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere in the amount of over 87 million tons of CO2 equivalent.

Currently, the construction of new power units of the Kursk NPP-2 according to the VVER-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, the construction of a power unit with the BREST-300 fast reactor is underway in Seversk (Tomsk region) as part of the Breakthrough project to create a new technological platform, as well as two modernized low-power floating power units (LPFU) for Chukotka. The nuclear industry plans to build other nuclear facilities, including a small ground station in the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia).

Today, the share of electricity generated by nuclear power plants in Russia’s energy balance is about 20%, and by 2045 it should reach 25%. This instruction was given to the State Corporation Rosatom by the President of Russia. The development of nuclear technologies and the construction of new nuclear power plant units in Russia mean new jobs and an improvement in the quality of life of people in satellite cities of 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.
