<p class=The Press Representative of the Cyprus Transmission System Operator clarifies that there is sufficient electricity despite the high demand

Sufficient is electricity supply, despite the high demand, said the Spokesperson of the Cyprus Transmission System Operator (TSO) Chara Koussiappa.

Speaking to KYPE, he said that today the maximum demand is expected to fluctuate around 1,150 MB during the midday hours, i.e. 14:00-16:00, while he noted that there will be a contribution from photovoltaic systems of around 500 MB during the time of maximum production.

As he said, the wind production is expected to fluctuate around 5-10MB, adding that RES are expected to cover around 48% of the demand at the time of their maximum production. Yesterday the peak demand was recorded at 15:45 in the afternoon and amounted to 1,104 MB.

Demand approaches last year's record this year

This year's highest demand so far was recorded on June 14, at 1,217MB at 16:00, very close to the all-year high that was on July 24, 2023 at 1,243MB.

“We have high demand all this time because the temperature has dropped a little these days but there has been a prolonged heat wave,” he said. He added that from tomorrow when higher temperatures are expected, the demand is expected to increase even more. in the evening hours which is covered by conventional generation alone is lower, around 950-1,000MB during evening peak hours.

“So there is also a reserve. There is also a small contribution from wind farms around 10-30 MB for today,” he said.

He added that there is not expected to be any problem due to increased demand.
