Tavanir Announces 3,000 MW Power Deficit

Tavanir Announces 3,000 MW Power Deficit

Iran Power Generation and Transmission Company (Tavanir) called for 2,500-3,000 megawatts (MW) cut in power consumption during the summer, the company’s deputy for distribution affairs said.
To manage power consumption in the hot season, plans were devised to store electricity and undertake power plant overhauls, Gholamreza Khoshkholgh was quoted by Mehr news agency as saying.
“Electricity consumption should be reduced by 2,500-3,000 MW this summer given the recent decline in precipitation and the need to generate 15 percent of electricity from dams,” he noted.
The energy ministry recently announced that nearly 60 percent of the reservoirs of major dams are empty. He further said there has been a decrease of 16 percent in inflow of water into dams since autumn.
Reducing power wastage in the production, transfer, and distribution networks and enhancing the efficiency of power plants are the two major goals pursued by Tavanir and the energy ministry in the current year (started March 21).
Over the past year energy wastage was curbed by more than 3 percent, reaching 12.8 percent, and plans call for reducing it to below 10 percent in the current year.
