According to the minister, the most affected are the facilities of thermal and hydro generation. Currently, there is a need for high-voltage equipment, autotransformers, and equipment for repairs.

Ambassador Brink, in turn, noted that the United States is ready to assist in the restoration of the energy sector and preparation for the next heating season.

Both sides also discussed issues of cooperation regarding the strengthening of physical protection of energy facilities.

Additionally, they discussed measures for the decentralisation of generation before the start of the next heating season, specifically the need for the installation of additional capacities for distributed generation.
