Plenty of capacity to cover summer power demand

The Republic has sufficient electricity production to cover the expected demand during the summer period, the Transmission System Operator (TSO) said on Thursday.

The TSO said power production was sufficient provided there will not be any unforeseen malfunctions that will affect the production units.

The TSO however, urged consumers to try and save energy for everyone’s benefit.

Maximum demand so far this year reached 870MW, which includes the estimated production of photovoltaic systems linked to the grid.

Maximum demand in 2014 was 910MW, recorded towards the end of August.

Total available capacity is 1,257MW.

The TSO expects demand this year to reach a similar level as in 2014 but did not rule out exceeding last year’s maximum if there was a sudden protracted heat wave.
