An overview of the installed electrical generating capacity in the entire Eastern European region is given along with the plants intended for expansion to meet the forecasted system load demands.

The emphasis with future power plants in the region will be attached to attaining considerably higher generating efficiency and operating availability than are presently being achieved, as well as to directly reducing pollutant emissions to protect the environment more effectively.

Modern Western technology will be adopted on a certain scale to meet the objectives of better economy and ecological conservation. In many cases this will be accomplished by cooperating with Western companies to ensure long-term technology transfer. In particular, many of the new power plants required will be built in the form of combined-cycle installations. Gas turbines may in some cases be retrofitted to existing reheat steam boiler/turbine units (topping or repowering) to improve overall station efficiency.

Particular power plant projects in Eastern Europe including the Commonwealth of Independent States are presented as examples of typical solutions to achieving the goals that are so important to the region.
