On May 12, Ukraine began exporting electricity to Moldova, the supplies are carried out by the state-owned company Ukrhydroenergo.

The export capacity to Moldova at 10 am was 148 MW, the head of Ukrenergo Volodymyr Kudrytskyi reports.

At the 24-hour auction, Ukrhydroenergo bought the crossing for export to Moldova 80 MW for 1-4 hours and 150 MW for 5-24 hours.

At the daily auction for the distribution of interstate crossings for May 13, Ukrhydroenergo bought 100 MW for 1-4 hours and 160 MW for 5-24 hours.

Moldova is heavily dependent on electricity from the Moldavian SDPP, owned by Russia's Inter RAO and located in the self-proclaimed Transnistrian Republic. Energy price is $85.5-$96.5 MWh.

This energy is not quite enough to meet the needs of Moldova. Deputy Prime Minister of the country Andrei Spinu said earlier that Moldova needed to cover another 30% of consumption in May. The priority here is exactly the resource from Ukraine.

For the first time after synchronization with ENTSO-E, Ukraine began exporting electricity to Poland. From March 30, DTEK Zakhidenergo has been supplying the energy there. As of May 12, the contracted capacity is 210 MW on an even schedule.
