Study: The Destruction of Iraq's Electricity Infrastructure. The Social, Economic and Environmental Impacts

During 2009, after six years of occupation, with a population of about 30 million and required peak demand of 6800 -- 7500 MW [2], only 3,300 MW of electricity was available. To date, Iraq cannot achieve it's 9,925 MW production of the late 1980s. In other words, the Iraqi population is getting only 30% of the electricity production the pre-occupation government had previously provided for them. Electricity came to Iraq in 1917 [1].
