Albania faces deepening energy crisis

Oct 25, 2007 02:00 AM

The energy situation in Albania is worsening, despite the recent rains and snowfalls.
There is no substantial increase of the levels in main accumulations, while the consumption of electric power surged due to low temperatures, triggering prolonged restrictions.

Interruptions in power supply in Tirana and other cities last for up to 8 hours a day, while some rural settlements are cut off for 15 hours.
The Albanian Electric Power Corporation Kesh imports 9.6 mm KWh and produces as little as 4.9 mm KWh on a daily basis. The current consumption reaches 14.6 mm KWh.

The Energy Ministry and Kesh announced further increase of the electricity imports, despite the high price of imported electricity.
