Today, Saturday, the Ministry of Electricity announced its most prominent expected projects to support the national system with new cards, while confirming the work to establish generating stations through wind and waste recycling.
A spokesman for the Ministry of Electricity, Ahmed Musa, told the official news agency, "The ministry signed contracts with international companies to establish solar power plants, and was keen to distribute them to all governorates of Iraq in coordination with local governments and governors."
Moussa added, "The ministry has other projects it intends to work on in cooperation with the Municipality of Baghdad and local governments, including waste recycling stations, as two sites were chosen, one in the Abu Ghraib area and the other in the Nahrawan area," stressing that "there is coordination and a joint work record with the Baghdad Municipality to establish these stations.
He pointed out that "there are other projects that the ministry intends to pursue, including the installation of wind energy production stations in the Shehabi area in coordination with the Ministry of Science and Technology, as it determines the wind speed," noting that "this whole issue needs a set of determinants that ministries other than electricity are looking for."
He stressed that "the Ministry of Electricity is open to diversifying energy sources significantly, whether it is wind, solar energy, or even waste recycling, taking into account its progress in improving, strengthening and rehabilitating the sectors of production plants that depend on gas and fossil fuels."
He explained that "the Al-Shihabi area in Wasit Governorate is the only one that can be qualified to move towards installing wind farms or wind stations," noting that "there are a number of measures that are taken with the concerned authorities, in addition to the need for government decisions to proceed with these stations."
