Iran power industry: Exports up, imports down

Financial Tribune – The pattern of power exports over the past three years is worthy of appreciation because, among other things, it indicates judicious domestic electricity consumption.

Consumption declined by an estimated 4,000 megawatts last summer thanks to the cooperation and electricity use by households along with the agro and industrial sectors

Based on data from the Statistical Center of Iran, Tavanir (Iran Power Generation, Distribution and Transmission Company) exported 2.9 billion kilowatt hours of power to neighbors, namely Iraq, Pakistan and Afghanistan between June and September 2019, ILNA reported.

Although domestic demand also peaked in the same period (summer season), the sate-run Tavanir managed to hit a record on the export front.
