Power Consumption at All-Time High

Iran’s electricity consumption reached a peak of 55,400 megawatts on Wednesday, experiencing a 7% rise compared with the consumption level in the corresponding period of last year. The record is the highest since keeping records started nearly a century ago, IRNA reported. The rise in temperature has exacerbated the situation, forcing people to maximize the use of air conditioners. Electricity demand is forecast to reach 56,000 MW this summer, Iran's Energy Ministry said. Some analysts have warned that electricity demand could peak at 58,000 MW. 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 daytime in the past few years. To increase the country’s power grid sustainability, Iran has embarked on joint ventures, especially with the Caspian Sea littoral states, to synchronize its electricity network with those of regional countries.
