Power generation
(billion kWh)

The NPP capacity factor
amounted to 79.9%.
Nuclear power generation
accounted for 18.7%
of the total electricity
output in Russia.

The balance
target set by the Federal Antimonopoly Service (FAS) of Russia was
by 1.5%.

The Russian nuclear power industry
has almost matched the all-time high
reached by Soviet NPPs in 1989:
back then, 54 power units at 16 Soviet NPPs
generated 212.6 billion kWh.

The growth of electricity output was driven,
among other things,
by the commissioning of
powerful new power units at Rostov
NPP and Leningrad NPP-2.
