The company explained that it is planned to supply 13,393 MWh during the day, with a maximum power in individual hours of up to 726 MW.

Energy workers recalled that from March 1, the technically possible maximum capacity for exporting electricity from Ukraine and Moldova to Europe is 550 MW per hour. This decision was made by the transmission system operators of the countries of continental Europe ENTSO-E.

“Please note that the export of electricity from Ukraine to other countries is carried out only if there is no shortage in the energy system,” the message says.
