Iran Electricity Consumption Near All-Time High

Iran’s electricity consumption reached a peak of 52,470 megawatts on Sunday, the highest in the current fiscal year that started in March and close to the 52,790-MW mark reached in the fiscal 2016-17. Electricity demand is forecast to reach as high as 56,000 MW this summer, according to ISNA, citing a report by the Energy Ministry.

According to the report, between 2006 and 2010, the national grid experienced the highest power load at night, but peak demand has shifted to summer daylight in the past few years.

Reportedly, Iran's electricity exchange stood at 1,929 MW on Sunday, of which 1,260 MW accounted for exports.

The country imported 260 MW on the same day, which kept the electricity trade balance positive.

Currently, Iran has power exchange deals with seven neighboring states. Installed capacity is currently around 75,000 MW.

Around 61,000 MW are produced from thermal plants, 12,000 MW from hydroelectric plants and 1,000 MW from nuclear power.

Barely a few hundred megawatts are produced from renewables.
