“An estimated 313 billion kilowatt hours of power was produced in 2019, of which one-fourth or 80 billion kWh was with the help of steam units in combined cycle power plants, hydro power stations, the Bushehr Nuclear Power Plant and renewables,” Mohsen Tarztalab was quoted as saying by Bargh News website.
Referring to share of steam, he said it accounted for 42 billion kWh and helped save 11 billion cubic meters of natural gas in one year.
