Baghdad: Muhannad Abd al-Wahhab
The Parliamentary Electricity and Energy Committee believes that the next two years will witness the solution of many electrical energy problems after the Sudanese government's decision to take on a challenge that was greatly delayed during the past two decades, calling for the adoption of renewable energy.
The first deputy chairman of the committee, Walid al-Sahlani, said: "The solution to the current crisis is the preoccupation of the government and the Electricity Committee, which reviewed the contracts concluded by the government," noting that "there are several obstacles during the current summer season related to Iranian gas, which has decreased greatly in the stations of the southern and central provinces." . Al-Sahlani added, in an interview with "Al-Sabah", that "the decrease in the quantities of imported Iranian gas greatly affected production," noting that "
And the deputy added that there is another aspect of the crisis, which is "the impact of private generators on the life of the citizen, with the presence of more hours of cutting power supply in the capital, Baghdad, or some provinces in the middle Euphrates," noting that "the current production has increased from 20 to 22 thousand megawatts, while it needs Iraq actually reaches 26,000 megawatts, and it is clear from this that there is a gap between production and transportation, the level of production is ahead of transportation.
He attributed the reasons for the failure of some of the new stations to stop working to the absence of transport lines, and said: "There is some opposition by some clans, not to mention agricultural contracts, and the passage of these lines in some archaeological sites, and for this we will need the approvals of the authorities responsible for the antiquities," pointing to Existence "
Al-Sahlani said: His committee will meet the advanced owners in the concerned authorities that oppose the transmission lines, “The transportation problem and the gas dilemma must be resolved within the next two years, after the government contracts with major companies in the energy field.” The deputy explains the gas problems by saying: “The compressed gas is supposed to
reach Operating stations at a rate of no less than 30 or 40%, especially in the central region," adding, "It is better to go towards renewable energy and attract international companies to build clean energy stations."
According to the deputy, electricity is moving to build renewable energy stations with a capacity of 1,000 megawatts in the governorates of Karbala, Babil and Diyala, after meeting with the International Energy Organization, after referring the implementation to the Emirati company, Masdar.
