    Economy News _ Baghdad
    A severe electricity crisis has recently struck a number of Arab countries, with crises ranging from a shortage of fuel needed to operate stations, insufficient gas production, or a shortage of hard currency to import this fuel, at a time when the region is witnessing extremely harsh heat waves.
    According to the specialized energy platform, the State of Kuwait is the latest to join the club of power outages due to increased consumption, but this crisis was a surprise, especially with the country’s sufficient energy supply of oil and gas.
    In addition to Kuwait, there is Egypt, which is witnessing an electricity crisis that has worsened over the course of an entire year, until it was forced to increase the number of hours of power outages to 3 hours instead of the scheduled two hours per day, twice during the month of June (2024).
    The crisis is also hitting Iraq, Yemen, Syria, Sudan, and Lebanon, bringing the number of Arab countries witnessing a worsening electricity crisis to 7 countries, whose citizens have faced repeated outages during the recent period.
    Electricity in Iraq
    Despite the improvement witnessed by the electricity sector in Iraq, especially with the start of exploiting associated gas, stopping its burning and directing it to power plants, every summer carries with it an electricity crisis, especially since Baghdad still depends on Iranian gas, which is constantly intermittent and faltering. .
    Some Iraqi governorates are witnessing power outages for varying durations, despite the attention given to the sector by the government, headed by Prime Minister Muhammad Shiaa al-Sudani, as new development plans aim to add 200 new generating units, in addition to providing more fuel sources, including fuel oil and red diesel.
    The Iraqi Minister of Electricity, Ziyad Ali Fadel, recently acknowledged the existence of an electricity crisis, caused by a large deficit exceeding 50% of the total current production of the stations, as the total deficit reached about 13 thousand megawatts, according to the specialized energy platform.
    Electricity in Egypt
    Egypt has been witnessing an electricity crisis since May 2023, which caused the government to announce the start of implementing a plan to reduce loads with power outage periods of one hour, which later increased to two hours, and the Ministry of Electricity and Renewable Energy pushes it to 3 hours in times of crisis, which is often repeated. Recently.
    The latest extreme heat waves caused Egypt to announce an increase in the number of hours of power cuts to 3 hours on June 23, which is the second time during the same month, with the decline in gas supplies needed by the stations from 25 million cubic meters per day to 13 million cubic meters. Daily only.
    At the same time, Cairo is witnessing a decline in natural gas production during the first quarter of 2024, becoming the sixth consecutive quarterly decline, as total production reached about 13.429 billion cubic meters during the period from January to the end of March 2024.
    This production is down by about 2.108 billion cubic metres, compared to the production recorded in the same period last year 2023, which amounted to about 15.537 billion cubic metres, according to figures published by the Specialized Energy Platform (based in Washington).
    Power outage in Kuwait
    On June 19, 2024, citizens and residents of the State of Kuwait were surprised by a strange announcement of its kind, as the Ministry of Electricity, Water, and Renewable Energy announced that it was setting a schedule for automatic disconnection of the power, as a result of increased consumption, due to an intense heat wave hitting the country.
    The statement is considered surprising, because the State of Kuwait is not accustomed to an electricity crisis, as its network system has enjoyed a high rate of stability over the past years, especially in the presence of the Gulf connection that allows it to import from the main network.
    The latest electricity crisis in Kuwait comes even though it imports 400 megawatts daily from the Gulf interconnection network to support the local network’s need, but these quantities are insufficient to meet the increasing demand at peak times, which is midday between (12 noon to 6 p.m.).
    According to the specialized energy platform, the power outage in Kuwait will continue until mid-September 2024, as the Ministry is scheduled to resort to a programmed power cut for 3 hours a day, alternating between regions within the governorates during the months of July and August.
    An electricity crisis strikes Yemen.
    Yemen has been facing a severe electricity crisis for many years, despite continuous Saudi support - by pumping huge amounts of fuel needed to operate power plants - as this file constitutes a major crisis for the government, amid power outages exceeding 16 hours a day.
    Yemeni Prime Minister Ahmed Awad Al-Mubarak apologized to his country's citizens last May for his government being forced to cut off electricity in light of the absence of fuel needed to operate power plants, even though the sector drains up to 31% of state revenues.
    During the past year, 2023, Yemen spent huge sums of money, which were sufficient to establish and establish strategic stations, eliminating the country from resorting to renting stations, as the government spends about two million dollars a day on electricity stations in Aden Governorate, as the tender committee was buying a ton of fuel for about 1,200 dollars. , before buying it for less than $700 through tenders, according to figures announced by the Prime Minister.
    Electricity in Syria
    Syria has been facing an electricity crisis for many years, as the country that has been witnessing war for more than 12 years suffers from complete destruction of infrastructure due to battles, or sabotage with the aim of theft, especially since it is administratively divided into 3 regions, most of which are subject to different authorities, It suffers varying degrees of power outages.
    Most of the power generation stations in Syria had suffered damage to their infrastructure, as well as the electricity transmission networks, which faced the theft of high and medium voltage towers, with the aim of selling them as a source of copper on the black market, according to information monitored by the Specialized Energy Platform (based in Washington).
    In light of this crisis, the affluent people rely on solar energy as a source that provides them with clean electricity, even though it is not sustainable, while citizens in some cities such as Aleppo and Damascus buy electricity from private stations that operate on gasoline and diesel, or private solar energy stations.
    The Syrian electricity crisis is not specific, as the times of power cuts from government stations are irregular, and may reach 20 hours a day, and while some facilities and services are not subject to load shedding, such as hospitals and water stations, the power supply situation for homes and facilities has not witnessed improvement over the past two years.
    Electricity Crisis in Lebanon
    Lebanon has been facing a severe electricity crisis for more than three decades, but its severity has increased significantly over the past two years, at a time when the country depends on oil, which contributes a large share of the total electricity supply.
    The duration of power outages in Lebanon reaches about 20 hours per day, and may increase in some areas, as a result of the economic crisis that the country is going through, especially after diesel and diesel fuel imports have decreased since 2020.
    This contributed to increasing rates of resort to private diesel generators, and increasing reliance on renewable energy sources to generate electricity, according to what the specialized energy platform reviewed.
    It is noteworthy that Lebanon has electricity generation plants, divided into two types, thermal and hydro, both of which produce about 3016.6 megawatts. The seven “fuel-operated” thermal plants in the country produce about 2764 megawatts, while the “hydroelectric” plants produce about 252.6 megawatts, according to the website. Lebanon Electricity Corporation.
    Sudan is at a critical juncture
    . Despite the great efforts made by the Sudanese Ministry of Energy and Oil, the country is witnessing a violent electricity crisis, caused by the ongoing battles between the government and the Rapid Support Forces, leading to the destruction of electricity transmission lines and some important vital installations for the sector.
    On June 19, the electricity sector in Sudan was exposed to a new malfunction, after the electricity transmission line between the Jamouia and Jabal Awliya stations was damaged by artillery shelling, while the Mahdia conversion station was out of service, which led to some lines being out of service and causing complete darkness. In all states.
    The war continues in Sudan, causing a violent electricity crisis, with power outages daily for periods of up to about 14 hours a day, despite the ministry’s attempts to obtain regular supplies from hydroelectric power stations in the country.
