Russian Energy Week 2018Ministerial Meeting "The Effectiveness of Energy Regulation: General Approaches and Divergence between Countries"
Over the past 10 years, we have carried out extensive work to modernize the energy system of Belarus and we will continue it. Another strategic objective is diversification, which provides for the maximum involvement of local types of fuel and the use of atomic energy. Jointly with the Russian Federation, Belarus is implementing a project to build the Belarusian Nuclear Power Plant with installed capacity of 2,400 MW. The first unit will be put into operation in 2019 and the second in 2020. The commissioning of the nuclear power plant provides serious incentive for an objective assessment of the prospects for trade interaction between Belarus and Russia
