    Information/report..
    It is strange that Iraq is the oil country that stands among the rich countries in terms of the raw materials that operate energy, and it is without energy or electricity, and it is not reasonable for the Iraqi governments to resort to temporary solutions in this file to manage the affairs of the rest of their governments without developing radical solutions to the thorny file.

    The victim remains the Iraqi citizen who is suffering during this period in record high temperatures, which has led to a lot of damage, including wailing and crying for some Iraqis who lost their lives as a result of the high temperatures and an almost complete power outage.
    The extreme heat and power outage led to the death of two members of the security forces in Anbar and Baghdad, which increased popular discontent with those in charge of this file.
    Electrical energy entered Iraq in 1917, and its development continued in parallel with the oil revolution, until in 1955 the Iraqi government transferred ownership of the Baghdad Electricity Company to a government department called the Baghdad Electricity Authority.

    The development of electrical energy in Iraq continued until it reached 9496 megawatts before the Second Gulf War, when the population of Iraq was about 18 million people, which means that about 90% of the Iraqi population had access to electricity.
    During the Second Gulf War, about 92% of the foundations of the Iraqi electricity network were destroyed by air and missile strikes until more than 8,585 megawatts were lost, and energy production decreased to only (1,598) megawatts in 1991.
    During the invasion of Iraq in 2003, power plants were subjected to direct bombardment by American forces, which led to a decrease in electrical power production to only about 20% of the original capacity of Iraqi power plants. As a result, electricity reaches Baghdad homes for only 3-5 hours per day.
    In June 2008, the Iraqi Ministry of Electricity said that there was a large gap between electricity consumption and production in the country, as demand reached 10,500 megawatts while the capacity of the electricity network did not exceed 5,500 megawatts.

    In November 2019, the Iraqi Ministry of Electricity stated that Iraq produces 19.5 gigawatts of electricity annually, while it needs 26.5 gigawatts, and makes up for the difference by importing 7 gigawatts from Iran.
    In order to provide electricity 24 hours a day, the ministry said in statements by its spokesman Ahmed Al-Abadi in June 2021 that Iraq needs 27 thousand megawatts of energy to provide 24-hour electricity to citizens.
    Al-Abadi pointed out that Iraq needs 70 million cubic meters of gas to raise electrical energy production to 22 thousand megawatts, and imports 20 million cubic meters of it from Iran. Iraq also imports 1,200 megawatts of electrical energy from Iran, while it needs 27,000 megawatts to provide electrical energy 24 hours a day, as the local need for electricity reached 35,000 megawatts in 2023, according to the Iraqi Ministry of Electricity.
    Since 2003, Iraqis have heard dozens of government promises to end the crisis, as Deputy Prime Minister for Energy Affairs, Hussein al-Shahristani, confirmed in 2012 that Iraq would reach the stage of complete sufficiency of electricity, and that it might even “export it to neighboring markets.”
    But the Iraqis have not seen any effect of those promises so far, despite dozens of contracts signed with international energy companies.
    In May 2008, Iraq signed a contract worth 179 million euros with General Electric to purchase eight generators powered by natural gas, most of which will be installed in the capital, Baghdad. In June 2008, Iraq signed a contract with the American company General Electric to establish three large power stations worth 480 million dollars. In July 2010, Acting Iraqi Minister of Electricity Hussein al-Shahristani signed a contract with the French company Alstom to establish a steam station to produce electrical energy with a capacity of 1,200 megawatts and rehabilitate another station.
    In November 2017, the government of Haider al-Abadi signed with the Swedish company ABB to implement projects to transmit electrical energy for the benefit of the Ministry of Electricity, estimating the value of the contract at about 500 million dollars. In May 2018, the Iraqi Ministry of Electricity signed agreements with General Electric and Siemens regarding deals. Potential for developing electricity infrastructure, with a processing capacity of up to 11 megawatts and a cost of $15 billion.

     
    In September 2019, the Iraqi Ministry of Oil signed a contract with the French company “Total Energy” worth $27 billion, to implement four projects in the field of gas and electric energy, and in July 2020, the Iraqi Ministry of Electricity signed a contract with a consortium of companies led by the Norwegian “Scatec” to produce 525 megawatts of electricity. Of solar energy worth $500 million.
    In July 2020, Iraq signed a contract with the Abu Dhabi Future Energy Company to build 5 solar energy plants to produce two thousand megawatts of electricity, and in August 2021, Iraq signed an agreement with the Chinese company “Power China” to establish solar energy plants with a capacity of 2,000 megawatts, and in May 2021 it signed The Iraqi Ministry of Oil signed a contract with the French company Total Energies, worth $27 billion, to implement four projects in the field of gas and electric energy. In March 2023, Iraq signed 3 contracts with the German company Siemens to rehabilitate three electric power plants, and in July 2023, Iraq and Total launched Energy launched a $10 billion project aimed specifically at generating electricity from solar energy and gas burned in oil fields, with the aim of modernizing the electricity sector, which is witnessing a worsening crisis.
    All of this happened to Iraq in the electricity file, but the Iraqi government is unable to take any action against those in charge of this file, so that Parliament has the initiative to host the Minister of Electricity in the House of Representatives.
    Member of the Parliamentary Integrity Committee, Hadi Al-Salami, confirmed that there is a parliamentary movement aimed at hosting the Minister of Electricity to discuss the issue of the poor reality of electricity. 
    Al-Salami told Al-Maalouma Agency, “The House of Representatives intends to host the Minister of Electricity, Ziad Ali Fadel, to find out the truth about the decline in electricity processing hours in Baghdad and a number of Iraqi provinces.” 
    He added, "The continuing power outage and government promises to end this outage are ink on paper, noting that electricity in Iraq has become a dilemma that cannot be solved."
    For its part, the Parliamentary Electricity and Energy Committee confirmed that it will host the Minister of Electricity and the senior staff in the ministry during the next two days.
    Committee member MP Suhaila Al-Sultani told Al-Maaloma Agency, “The committee recorded many observations on the reluctance of the advanced staff in the ministry, indicating that “hosting will rise to the stage of interrogation under the dome of Parliament to be frank with the people about the reality of the electricity sector.” 
    She pointed out, “ Over the past few days, the members of the committee conducted several field visits to the various electricity sectors in Baghdad and the governorates, where many negative observations were recorded regarding the performance of the Ministry’s technical and administrative cadres.
