Centrenergo is a 78.3% state-owned company that generates electricity in industrially advanced regions of Ukraine, including Kyiv (Trypilska), Kharkiv (Zmiivska), and territory under control in Donetsk region (Vuhlehirska). It consists of three combined heat-and-power plants (CHPs) with total production capacity of 7,690 MW and a maintenance company “Remenergo”, which is in charge of equipment repairs for CHPs. Centrenergro facilities account for about 15% of total power generated in Ukraine. In 2016, 78.3% of company’s shares were transferred to State Property Fund. The company is audited by Baker Tilly since 2014. The company has a supervisory board that consists of five people, including three representatives of the State Property Fund, and two representatives of other shareholders.


In 2018, Centrenergo generated 20% of power produced by all CHPs in Ukraine. The company’s installed capacity only reached 31% which implies significant potential for increasing market share. In 2019 Centrenergo decreased the average tariff from 1.9 to 1.3 UAH/kWh. In the last five years, the company has changed the mix of raw materials it uses. Initially, 39% of company’s generating capacity were gas-fired and 61% were coal-fired. 45% of the company's total generating capacity was operating on anthracite, and therefore highly dependent on it. In 2014 due to military conflict in the sourcing region, it became in short supply, which resulted in decrease of electricity output and search for substitution options starting from 2017. As of 2019, the company successfully became independent from anthracite. As of 2018, the company employs 6,765 workers, and from 2017 to 2018 the number of employees mostly remained unchangeable, while average monthly salary increased by 15%.
