Ministry of Electricity pledged, on Sunday, to add capacity ranging from four thousand to six thousand megawatts if the budget for next year is approved.
The official in charge of the affairs of the Ministry of Electricity, Adel Karim, told the official news agency, "Regarding our agreement signed with Jordan, the funds have been allocated, the company has been selected, and the path will be determined, and work will begin soon next summer."
He added, "Negotiations are underway with our Gulf brothers, and technical and economic issues are currently being resolved, and we hope to sign soon, and we are in continuous negotiations with the Saudis," continuing that "in the field of renewable energies, Iraq took a very big and giant step according to the decisions of the Council of Ministers, and the ministry was instructed and the government agreed. Iraq has achieved 7,500 megawatts of clean energies and agreed with major international companies in this field.
And he indicated that "every plan needs financial financing, and we have developed a plan and demanded simple financial financing, and if the budget was approved for the next year, we promised ourselves and the government to add a capacity of between four thousand and six thousand megawatts to the Iraqi energy system and thus the processing hours would improve, but this is not enough."
Karim said, "Currently we need 35,000 megawatts, while we are able to reach more than 21,000 megawatts, which means that we have a shortage of up to 14,000 megawatts, and this needs a medium-term plan for three years," noting that "we have a long plan for 5 years to reach to 45,000 megawatts, but the short plan if it is implemented, and the processing hours will be more than this year, and I imagine that there is an improvement this year."
