The Ministry of Electricity, Water and Renewable Energy said MEW has developed a set of scenarios in anticipation of an electricity crisis in 2025, including seeking assistance from the Gulf countries through the Gulf Interconnection Authority, to secure 600 megawatts during the peak period in the summer and when needed.

This is in addition to seeking temporary stations in the form of containers or the use of electricity production ships during the summer period to provide 470 megawatts.

The sources told Al-Seyassah electrical energy crisis is a global phenomenon resulting from the growing demand and consumption annually, in addition to the huge housing projects that the country is witnessing, stressing that the Ministry is sparing no effort to provide electrical energy to the country permanently and safely.
