Iran resumes electricity exports to Iraq

Iranian electricity company Tavanir spokesperson Mahmoud Reza Haghghi Fam stated that Iran resumed exporting electricity on August 11. Haghghi Fam stated that Iran has been gradually increasing the volume of its energy exports and is currently exporting 200 to 250 megawatts (MW) to Iraq, Afghanistan, and Pakistan. Haghghi Fam noted that satisfying domestic electricity consumption is Tavanir’s priority and that increased domestic consumption during the Summer months prevented Tavanir from exporting power to neighboring countries. The Energy Ministry suspended Iranian electricity exports to Iraq on July 7. (Tasnim News Agency) (Reuters) (E)
