Russian War Against Ukraine: Energy Dimension (daily updating DiXi Group alert) 

March 24

Summary

On the night of March 24, the Russian military attacked the city of Kryvyi Rih with drones, 5 of them impacted the city, yet all important infrastructure is working stably. Electricity supply was successfully restored. The Sumy region was shelled with guided aerial bombs, no damage was reported.

— According to Ukrenergo, only in the Zhytomyr region, due to significant damage to networks, consumption restrictions are applied. The situation remains difficult in the areas close to front line, as the enemy constantly damages grids with artillery fire.

— Attacks are a challenge for border regions as well. On March 23, during the planned restoration works in the city of Vovchansk, emergency crew came under artillery fire. Specialists have the task of restoring a 110 kV line.

— Unlike the previous period, when the electricity imports were insignificant (6-7 MW for different hours of the day), on March 24 noticeable fluctuations were reported – from 2-7 MW (00:00-11:00, 17:00-24:00) to 22-53 MW (11:00-17:00).

— The Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal noted that the World Bank’s new Rapid Damage and Needs Assessment does not currently include the loss of infrastructure, housing, and business in the occupied territories. The Vice PM for Reconstruction Oleksandr Kubrakov noted the RDNA showed the priority of rebuilding critical infrastructure, housing, social and transport facilities; here, the government needs the support of international partners.

— Energy companies of the Mykolaiv region received over 680 tons of equipment and materials for repair and restoration works – so the Minister of Energy Herman Halushchenko. Another 4 million EUR from the Ukraine Energy Support Fund will be used soon for the region’s needs.

— In 2024, Ukrhydroenergo plans to start construction of Europe’s largest energy storage facility (212 MW) – the CEO Ihor Syrota. Given Russia’s regular missile attacks on critical infrastructure, new facilities will be located underground.

— The Ministry of Agrarian Policy and Food and Ukrnafta signed a memorandum of cooperation to develop joint programs to support Ukrainian farmers, including fuel supply. The memorandum provides for the attraction and distribution of various types of support through the State Agrarian Registry.
