Kuwait’s 2035 Vi­sion seeks to in­crease power pro­duc­tion

Kuwait Times - - LOCAL -

Kuwait’s 2035 Vi­sion seeks to in­crease the pro­duc­tion of elec­tric power and build new sta­tions and is work­ing on the pro­duc­tion of al­ter­na­tive and re­new­able sources of clean en­ergy, most no­tably so­lar en­ergy.

The num­ber of power plants in Kuwait is cur­rently stands at seven sta­tions pro­duc­ing about 15,000 megawatts up to 32,000 megawatts by 2030. Kuwait is cov­ered by mod­ern elec­tri­cal net­works, some of which are air lines and un­der­ground buried ca­bles.

The State of Kuwait is one of the world’s largest con­sumers of wa­ter and elec­tric­ity in the world for sev­eral rea­sons, most no­tably the in­ten­sity of sum­mer heat, lo­ca­tion and ge­o­graph­i­cal na­ture, which re­quires gov­ern­ment and pub­lic to work to­gether to ra­tio­nal­ize the in­creas­ing con­sump­tion of elec­tric­ity and wa­ter, which cost the state bil­lions of di­nars. — KUNA
