The Egyptian Ministry of Electricity and Renewable Energy has said that the improvement of temperature has helped to stabilize the electrical loads on the country’s national grid, Amwal Al Ghad reports.
The maximum demand is expected to decrease by 0.8% to reach 24,800 MW on Thursday April 5th, compared to the demand maximum of 25,000 MW on Wednesday April 4th.
The demand is projected to stabilize due to regular fuel supplies and continuous electricity generation as reasons.
Egypt’s electricity generation increased by around 0.67% year-on-year (Y.o.Y) to reach 15 kWh in January 2018, compared to 14.9 kWh in January 2017, Egypt Oil & Gas reported.
Figures published by the Central Agency for Public Mobilization and Statistics (CAPMAS) show that the country’s electricity consumption rose by around 0.84% Y.o.Y to 12 kWh in January 2018, up from 11.9 kWh in the same month of the preceding year.
Households made up the largest electricity consumer sector in Egypt, using 5 kWh in January 2018, 41.7% of the country’s total consumption.
