Kuwait expands energy imports to boost summer electricity capacity

The Ministry of Electricity, Water, and Renewable Energy aims to enhance its 500-megawatt contracts with additional energy purchases from the Gulf Electricity Interconnection Authority.

A week following the Ministry of Electricity, Water, and Renewable Energy’s agreement to acquire 500 megawatts of electrical energy from Oman and Qatar via the Gulf Electricity Interconnection Authority, the ministry is now in talks to further boost its energy imports. This move aims to bolster Kuwait’s electricity capacity ahead of the summer season.

Informed sources at the ministry stated, “The ministry is negotiating with the Gulf Electricity Interconnection Authority to purchase an additional amount of energy, aiming to enhance the previously signed contracts for 500 megawatts, with the goal of securing the electrical network during peak periods in the summer.”

The statement indicates that negotiations are still in the early stages, and the exact quantities the ministry intends to import have not yet been determined.
