Generation in the Russian Federation

Generation in the Russian Federation includes two segments: ‘Electric Power Generation in the Russian Federation’ and ‘Thermal Power Generation in the Russian Federation.’ Revenue in the ‘Electric Power Generation in the Russian Federation’ segment increased by RUB 11.668 billion (7%) in 2018 primarily due to increased revenue from capacity sales as a result of the commissioning of new and modernized generating capacity as part of CDA, the commissioning of the leased facilities of LLC Kaliningrad Generation, and growth in capacity selling prices.

EBITDA grew by RUB 2.94 billion (5%) due to the increased efficiency of Inter RAO Group – Electric Power Plants as a result of the commissioning of new and modernized generating capacity as part of CDA, growth in the estimated capacity selling price in this sector, and the optimization of unprofitable and low-margin equipment during periods of low prices in the day-ahead market.

Revenue in the ‘Thermal Power Generation in the Russian Federation’ segment increased by RUB 5.406 billion (6.4%) in 2018 primarily due to the commissioning of the Zatonskaya CHPP, growth in the average selling prices for thermal power in 2017 and 2018 in Bashkortostan and the Omsk and Tomsk Regions, increased heat supply, and also as a result of growth in supply volume and prices in the competitive capacity auction (CCA) and capacity delivery agreement (CDA) segments for JSC TGC-11 JSC.
