(MENAFN) According to official figures from the Turkish Electricity Transmission Corporation (TEIAS), Turkey’s daily electricity consumption increased by 2.88 percent on Tuesday compared to the previous day, reaching a total of 879,477 megawatts per hours. The peak hourly power consumption was recorded at 41,517 megawatts per hours at 12 p.m. regional time, while the lowest usage was recorded at 29,918 megawatts per hours at 5 a.m. regional time.

TEIAS data also revealed that the country's electricity production on Tuesday amounted to 869,685 megawatts per hours, marking a 2.95 percent increase from Monday. Imported coal plants contributed to 23.4 percent of the total generation, while natural gas and wind plants contributed 19.6 percent and 14 percent, correspondingly.

It is worth noting that Turkey’s electricity exports amounted to 6,237 megawatts per hours on Tuesday, while the imports totaled 16,029 megawatts per hours. These figures demonstrate the country's dependence on imports for electricity generation and highlight the importance of diversifying its energy sources.

Overall, the increase in daily electricity consumption and production indicates that Turkey’s energy demands are steadily growing, which poses a challenge to the country's energy sector. The government will need to continue investing in the expansion of energy infrastructure and the development of alternative energy sources to ensure that the country's electricity needs are met in a sustainable and reliable manner.
