This folding map was released in the 1960s, after several completed 5-year plans, finished industrialization of the country, expanded development of kolkhozes, and emergence of nuclear power plants on the Soviet territory. A small-scale part “Schematic Map of Electrification of [the European part of] Russia” was reprinted from a 1920 edition compiled by the State Commission of Electrification.
The main map scale is 1:8,000,000. Systems of electrical grids of various regions were highlighted with colors: Northwestern, Caucasian, Siberian, etc. Locations of power plants are shown, indicating periods of their emergence. Power stations and transmission lines that were under construction in 1965 are also displayed.
The map is supplemented with 12 charts and diagrams, including:
1) development of the means of production;
2) increasing capacity of power plants;
3) electricity generation growth rate in the USSR and abroad;
4) capacity of the largest hydroelectric power plants in the world;
5) production and consumption of electricity by industry, agriculture, transport and other sectors;
6) supply of electricity to industry compared to 1913;
7) railway electrification;
8) amount of electric transport in cargo transportation;
9) electrification of collective and state farms;
10) development of major industry sectors from 1913 to 1965.
In all, a good source of energetic development of the Soviet country throughout decades.
