KfW Development Bank’s support has given Ukrenergo €177 million in loans and grants to restore and rebuild Ukraine’s energy infrastructure since the beginning of Russia’s full-scale invasion.

Background:

  • On the night of 7-8 May, Russia attacked power generation and transmission facilities in six of Ukraine’s oblasts. It was reported that restrictions on power consumption might be applied during the evening hours.
  • Subsequently, the Ukrenergo Dispatch Centre was forced to restrict energy supply to industry and businesses from 18:00 to 23:00.
