Rosenergoatom, the largest national generating company, is operator of all Russian nuclear power plants. It provides more than 40% of electricity in the European part of the country. In the past 15 years, Russian NPPs did not have a single incident that would be classed above Level 1 on International Nuclear Event Scale (INES). In 2014, Russian NPPs produced more than 180 kW·hours of electricity.


Capacity factor of the plants has increased by 8 % over past decade (73.4% in 2005 vs 81.6 % in 2014). Currently, capacity factor of domestic NPPs is up to that of the best-performing international peers, and has been at a level of about 85% since the beginning of 2015.
