- 6 hydropower plants have set new all-time high annual record outputs: Boguchanskaya HPP (16,104 GWh), Bureyskaya HPP (7,341 GWh), Votkinskaya HPP (3,642 GWh), Kamskaya HPP (2,732 GWh), Ust-Srednekanskaya HPP (614 GWh) and Kubanskaya PSHPP (14.8 GWh).
- 94,525 GWh – electricity output from hydro and pumped storage plants (-4.0% y-o-y).
- 31,779 GWh – electricity output from thermal power plants (+0.1% y-o-y).
- 433 GWh – electricity output from alternative renewable energy facilities (+0.5% y-o-y).
- 29,771 thousand Gcal – heat output from thermal power plants (+0.4% y-o-y) driven by lower air temperatures in most Far Eastern Federal District’s regions.
- 39,683.3 MW – total installed electric capacity of RusHydro Group incl. Boguchanskaya HPP as of December 31, 2019 (+297.2 MW to 2018 following commissioning of Nizhne-Bureyskaya HPP and Sakhalinskaya GRES-2, decommissioning of Sakhalinskaya GRES and partial decommissioning of Yakutskaya GRES as well as capacity uprate following rehabilitation & modernization of equipment).

Key highlights of 4Q 2019 and hydrological situation
- 26,003 GWh – electricity output from hydro and pumped storage plants (+18.8% to 4Q’19).
- 9,029 GWh – electricity output from thermal power plants (no change to 4Q’19).
- 121 GWh – electricity output from alternative renewable energy facilities (+4.0% to 4Q’19).
- As of January 1, 2020, water storage at reservoirs of the Volga-Kama cascade is 33% above the average level; at the reservoirs of the Far East and in the South of Russia – slightly above the normal level; at the reservoirs of Siberia – at the normal level.
- In the first quarter of 2020, water inflows to the reservoirs of the Volga-Kama cascade are expected to be 1.3-1.6x the normal level; to the reservoirs of Siberia – at the normal level or slightly above it.
