Ukraine’s leading private energy company, DTEK, is desperately calling on the global energy community for help to restore and roll out power to Ukrainian citizens.
DTEK participated in a 60-minute live broadcast in partnership with Enlit Europe, Smart Energy International and Power Engineering International to address this critical need and review the state of Ukraine’s power system during the war.
With more than $100 billion in damage to Ukraine’s critical energy infrastructure, significant changes to the energy landscape, and unforeseen management and day-to-day operational challenges, Ukrainian energy companies are facing a new reality.
But even under such conditions, energy systems remain largely operational and synchronization with European power grids has been achieved.
“The courage and unity demonstrated by Ukraine inspires the whole world,” said Oleksiy Povolotskyi, Director of Corporate Governance and Compliance, DTEK.
“Our international partners and friends have come together to support Ukraine and help Ukrainians in these difficult times. But the damage to Ukraine’s critical infrastructure is the worst since World War II. DTEK Group aims to do its best and keep the power sector stable amid the war. Any support from international business is crucial.”
