3Planning & Studies Office IntroductionPlanning & Studies OfficeThe presentation covers a time span extending to the years ( )Includes all the major components of electricity sectors (Generation, Transmission, Distribution & Renewable energy).Gives the urgent needs to be addressed
4Planning & Studies Office Background25 Year of war & lack of investment.Significant damage to power plants, substations & transmission lines.12 Year of sanctions had deprived (M.E) of any assets & resources to maintain or expand system accompanied by degradation.These challenges had led (M.E) to prepare a very powerful Master Plan.Fast Track gas power units contracts were singed in ( )Actual start of Master Plan was 2008 when the Mega Deal to supply 56/GE F9Es (7000MW) + 18 unit/Siemens (3200MW) was actually budgeted and signed December 2008.Installation of Mega Deal power units was delayed to 2010 due to the need for EPC contracts formulation consultations and assignment of budget.Planning & Studies Office
5Planning & Studies Office Renewable energy (Solar & Wind) Power generation planPlanning & Studies OfficeThe aim : to satisfy unmet electricity demand and provide reliable continuous supplyGas power plants12547 MW ( )Thermal power plants13590 MW ( )Renewable energy (Solar & Wind)400 MW ( )Combined Cycle5632 MW ( )No more Diesel plants after 2012.
10Gas power plant project 2013-2015 Planning & Studies Office
11steam power plant project 2013-2019 Planning & Studies Office
12steam & gas power plant projects 2013-2019 Planning & Studies Office
13Combined Cycle conversion Program Planning & Studies Office To be announcedPlanning & Studies OfficeAdded Capacity(MW)Conversion start Year538Phase one2839Phase two2255Phase threeAll existing and new gas power plants operated on natural gas will be converted from simple cycle to combined cycle.All new gas power plants operated on crude oil or heavy fuel oil will be converted to combined cycle when operated on natural gas.
18Reinforcement of the Existing Transmission Network 2012Planned to be in operation (2013)Planned to be in operation (2014)Planned to be in operation (2015)400 kV Substations25613400 kV Overhead Lines4900 km1500km132 kV Substations210291242132 kV Overhead Lines12,500km2500kmPlan to implement flexible AC systems (FACTS) is under development
24Renewable energy program In 2011 “Renewable energy & Environment Center” was established.Renewable Energy programs have been approved in both Generation & Distribution sides.Solar Potential in IRAQ:5.7 kWh/m2/Day.2050 kWh/m2/Year.
25Renewable energy program Generation side:Utilize solar & wind power to supply small isolated locations that cannot economically be connected to the grid .Install “on grid” & concentrated solar power (CSP) plants in later stages.
26Renewable energy program First stageThe first stage is to utilize solar and wind power to supply ten isolated areas:Total capacity : 50 MW.Total cost ( Estimated ) : 200 MUSD.Current status : TenderingExpected date of operation : 2014
27Renewable Energy program Phase one:MethodologySolar + Batteries+Wind turbinesDG units+
29Renewable energy program StrategyMW2014201520162017The renewable energy target is to reach 2% of the available power by the end of
30Renewable energy program Renewable energy (solar & wind) are promising , but technical and regulating measures are required to unleash their potentials.Detailed solar atlas of Iraq need to be created.Detailed wind atlas of Iraq need to be created.Legislation ,incentives should be issued to promote renewable goals.Technical assistance infrastructure of the center is required.
31Renewable energy program Demand side management Distribution side:Demand side managementSolar water heaters.Air-conditioning solar systems.Lighting (L.E.D).Domestic self generation units (PV).
32Present and future strategies Planning & Studies Office It’s Anticipated that the generation will match the demand during the year 2015.Two strategies ::Capacity additions to satisfy the unmet demand.:Reduce demand (Demand side management).Large scale conversion of the gas turbines in the plants of the“ Mega Deal” from burning crude oil or HFO to burning Natural gas .Large scale conversion of the simple cycle gas turbine units to combined cycle units.Mapping technical potentials (Solar , Wind , Waste & Bio energy)
33Strategies for the years (2012-2020) Planning & Studies Office G=DReduce Demand.Conversion of Gt units to burning N.GCombined cycle units (CCGT).Renewable Energy.Capacity additions to meet the demand
34Planning & Studies Office SummaryPlanning & Studies OfficeA lot of work has been done already.M.E have made a lot of progress , but there is still a great work to deal with, but it is setting itself up for the futureThe ministry now has the planning tools and needs training and Consultations to carry-on the planning process
35Planning & Studies Office SummaryPlanning & Studies OfficeIraq’s economy has started to accelerate.(Oil & Gas) output & revenues are increasingMajor projects are planned.Investment in electrical sector in Iraq( ) estimated to be 75 BUSD:Generation 35 BUSDTransmission BUSDDistribution 30 BUSD.
