(MENAFN) According to the official figures released by the Turkish Electricity Transmission Corporation (TEIAS), the country's daily electricity consumption witnessed a 2.79 percent increase on Wednesday in comparison to the previous day. This significant rise in the daily power consumption resulted in a total of 885,809 megawatts per hours of electricity usage. The hourly power consumption also peaked at 42,560 megawatts per hours at 12.00 p.m. regional time (0900 GMT), which is a considerable amount of energy consumption. On the other hand, the electricity consumption hit the lowest level of 29,707 megawatts per hours at 5 a.m. regional time (0200 GMT).
In terms of electricity production, the country generated a total of 873,027 megawatts per hours on Wednesday, marking a 2.60 percent increase compared to Tuesday. Among the various sources of power generation, natural gas plants contributed 25.3 percent of the total electricity production, while imported coal and hydroelectricity power plants contributed 21.6 percent and 14 percent, respectively.
Furthermore, Turkey's electricity exports on Wednesday amounted to 4,076 megawatts per hours, whereas the imports totaled 16,858 megawatts per hours. This indicates that the country's electricity production was sufficient to meet the demand for power consumption, as the imports were low in comparison to the exports.
Overall, the recent statistics on Turkey's electricity consumption and production demonstrate a growing demand for energy in the country, which is being met through various sources of power generation. The figures also suggest that the country is capable of producing enough electricity to meet the increasing demand for power consumption, which is a positive sign for the country's energy sector.
