After the commissioning of the nuclear power plant, Belarus has entered the world club of states using atomic energy for peaceful purposes. The domestic nuclear power plant in Ostrovets was brought to a new capacity of 400 megawatts on November 7. Taking into account the commissioning of two power units of the BelNPP, about 40% of the country's total electricity demand will be provided. This is the housing stock and the real sector. Energy Minister Viktor Karankevich said that the first power unit will start operating at 100% capacity in the first quarter of next year, and the second – In May 2022. This will significantly reduce the volume of natural gas consumption. The development of ecotransport will continue.
