Iraq Power Market Outlook to 2030, Update 2018 - Market Trends, Regulations, and Competitive Landscape

Summary

Iraq’s economic scenario is currently underscored by worsening security conditions and political instability. These are driven by insurgency, falling global oil prices, and domestic political turmoil. Oil exports, which are the principal revenue-earner for the government, declined in 2017, leading to negative growth that year. Consumption too dipped in 2017, due to a slump in industrial activity as well as widespread destruction of power generation infrastructure.

Iraq is expected to continue to depend heavily on thermal power during the forecast period of 2015-2030, due to the rapid growth in demand for electricity, which will make it necessary for the government to fall back on its fossil fuel reserves. Thermal power generation is particularly suitable for baseload generation and can effectively cater to the increase in demand; Iraq’s sizeable natural gas reserves are particularly advantageous in this regard. The government has demonstrated a tendency to keep electricity tariffs low, and thermal power provides cheap electricity, which suits this government policy.

The author does not expect the government to promote hydropower development during the forecast period, due primarily to the long gestation period of large hydropower projects. Nevertheless, there is potential for development. Small hydropower development may also fail to reach its full potential due to the absence of any specific supporting policies, such as feed-in tariffs (FiTs). The lack of supportive policy has also impeded the development of other types of renewable power, such as wind and solar. The government has announced a target for 5% of total power generation to come from renewables by 2030. However, it is still too early to comment on the development of renewables as no concrete proposals, either public or private, have surfaced. The development of nuclear power in Iraq also appears unlikely, due to associated security issues.
