Ukrhydroenergo is the largest hydropower generating company in Ukraine, including 10 power plants on the Dnipro and Dnister rivers. The company is one of 15 state-owned enterprises.
Ukrhydroenergo covers peak loads, frequency and power regulation, and a mobile emergency reserve in the United Energy System of Ukraine. Today, the company is on the energy frontline and has played an essential role in ensuring the reliability of the Ukraine power system. Ukrhydroenergo remains profitable and intends to continue their development and restoration projects.

Yes, we are fulfilling our critical mission in today's challenging conditions. However, our joint practical work and awareness of its importance are the key to light and warmth in the homes of Ukrainians.”
