  • Iraq loses 25% of electrical energy as gas supplies from Iran drop
Iraq lost about 25 percent of its electrical output due to a decrease in gas imports from Iran, totaling up to 4,200 megawatts per hour. The Iraqi Ministry of Electricity indicated that maintenance projects in Iran are delaying imports to match Iraq's electrical needs. Iraq imports 1,200 megawatts of electricity from Iran in addition to its 8,000 megawatts of electricity generated by gas imported from Iran to meet its demands. Yet, the ministry is looking to increase electricity generation to 27,000 megawatts by May 1st.
