On Monday, December 5, the situation in the energy system of Ukraine remains difficult.

Electricity shortages persist.

This was reported by the press service of "Ukrenergo".    

As the company notes, during the weekend, thanks to the increase in the capacity of nuclear power plants and the traditional Saturday-Sunday reduction in consumption, it was possible to apply a minimum amount of emergency shutdowns. 

However, on Monday morning, the "Ukrenergo" dispatch center recorded an increase in electricity consumption.

This is connected both with the beginning of the working week and with a noticeable decrease in temperature almost throughout the country.

The company also reminded that in case of non-compliance with consumption limits, emergency shutdowns are introduced.

Planned outage schedules are drawn up, applied and published by oblenergo.

"We all have a difficult heating season ahead of us. As a result of Russian missile attacks, the country's energy system has suffered significant damage. Ukrenergo repair crews, together with colleagues from oblenergo and manufacturing companies, are working around the clock to restore equipment damaged during shelling," the message says.
