The paper highlights a strong interest of energy consumers in attracting investment in the development of Russian power generation companies. The importance of corporate governance for enhancing the investment attractiveness of these companies is emphasized. An in-depth evaluation of their current corporate practices was carried out within the framework of the existing ownership structure. The study identified the indicators of corporate governance quality for the benefit of modern investors that are the least observed by the overwhelming majority of power companies. The indicators were obtained on the basis of whether or not the companies satisfy the criteria of the new Russian Corporate Governance Code, and the criteria of the methodologies of Standard & Poor’s, Spencer Stuart and Transparency International. The study shows a slight increase in the transparency of the companies in the post-reform period and compares it with the information disclosure by the major corporations of Great Britain, the USA and Europe. The study shows high correlation of the approach and composition of the identified indicators of the corporate governance quality for Russian power generation companies with the 2017 Russian Corporate Governance Index. This Index is based on the international Good Governance Index methodology adapted to the Russian conditions.
