Date to end electricity crisis in Iraq, Commission

Baghdad/ Iraq TradeLink: Chairman of the Iraqi parliamentary oil and energy commission Haibat al-
Halbousi disclosed the date to end the electricity crisis in the country.

In a statement, he put the next year will witness the end of this crisis.

But, he did not expect any end of this crisis this year due to internal electricity problems in administration and distribution.

He pointed that Iraq does not suffer lack of energy, but the problem is in the distribution network, pointing that this year’s production reached to 18.000 M/W, with an increase of 3.5 thousand M/W of the last year.

Most of Iraqi provinces lack the supply of electricity, particularly the southern provinces that heat reached to unprecedented levels early this summer.
