The Chernihiv power station is a cogeneration plant that was commissioned in 1961 with two 50 MW units.[3] Followed by a third, 100 MW unit in 1974, the plant now supplies heat, power, and hot water to the surrounding area of Chernihiv, serving 590 households. Heating used to be powered by only coal, but as of 2008, heating generation has been fuelled by 70% gas, 30% coal.[1]

In 2009, the plant emitted around 17.1 thousand tons of CO2 due to an increased in solid fuel use. To address these emissions, the plant's emission control technology (e.g. ash boilers) was upgraded and refurnished, costing the company Kyivenergo around 253.3 thousand UAH (~9.2 thousand USD). This project, however, only reduced the plant's emissions by around 50 tonnes.[1]

In 2017, civil protests (unrelated to energy) blocked transport of coal from the east to the west, causing some blackouts in the country, including the Chernihiv region.[4]
