Energy Undersecretary Yurdakul Yiğitgüden says his ministry is settling for costly energy options...
Yiğitgüden said there would be a 7 billion kilowatt energy shortage by the end of this year, which continues to top the agenda of the governments crisis management desk, which is expected to continue its meetings throughout the fall.
OFF SHORE AND MOBILE STATIONS
Among the expensive options that Yiğitgüden says the ministry is considering are offshore, mobile and fuel-powered power stations, which he said, had a short lifespan.
Yiğitgüden, explaining what the year-end energy shortfall is likely to look like, said: The rise in demand is currently a little above 9%, which means a shortage of 6.5 to 7 billion kW/h. There is a 3.5 billion-kW/h energy deficit for the next few months. I believe that if nothing goes astray, import prospects pay-off and if we are able to utilize additional stations with additional alternative fuel prospects, well just make it through this winter.
