The International Energy Agency expected the growth of electrical energy consumption in Iraq to more than 6% annually, indicating that solar energy for power generation will not contribute significantly during the period 2022-2024.
The agency said in a report that “the electricity use in the Middle East grew by more than 3.5% in the year 2021 and will continue at an average rate of 2% during the period 2022-2024 with an increase in population growth, increased demand for air conditioning and seawater desalination, and the expansion of energy use.” “.
The agency expected that “the electricity consumption in Iraq will grow at a rapid rate of more than 6% annually until the year 2024,” noting that “the Iraqi state is gradually reducing the energy deficit with the completion of at least one gas investment project (Halfaya) and many projects to revitalize power plants. gas powered.”
International Energy also indicated that "despite the ambitious plans to intensify solar energy generation of renewable energy, it is not expected to contribute significantly to Iraq's energy requirements in the period 2022-2024."
