The 24-hour blackout ended in Lebanon

Blackout is a word we hear more and more often lately. A long-term power outage is a scarecrow that many people fear, especially with the transition to not very stable renewables. Add to this the promotion of electromobility and, with it, a significant increase in consumption (about half at full electromobility), it is not surprising that there are major concerns around the world, although electromobility can paradoxically contribute to increasing network resilience in some respects. It increases the need to build large-capacity buffers, smaller buffers are also in chargers, not to mention the cars themselves in the function of low-capacity storage – V2G. Progress in the development of batteries and especially the reduction of their price facilitates and reduces the cost of building backup storage. However, the risk is there and it does not seem to be so small. Cryptocurrencies have seen blackouts in Iran, blackouts are also plaguing China, and Lebanon. This weekend, he recorded a full-day power outage.

In the case of Lebanon, this is a protracted problem associated with the local crisis. The country does not have enough fuel for its largest power plants, which are mainly those abroad and Deir Ammar. Lebanon has been limiting electricity supplies to a few hours a day for months, this time with a longer-term outage. Saturday’s outage became much longer than usual, and authorities warned that power supplies were unlikely to resume by Monday, and even admitted that a blackout could take days.

In the end, it wasn’t that long and deliveries were resumed on Sunday. Part of the fuel (6 million liters) was obtained from the army’s reserves, which is enough for another 3 days. The government has released an amount of over CZK 2 billion after recalculation for the purchase of fuel for power plants (heating oils), but people will still sometimes have to rely on their own generators, which is only true if they manage to get them for them. fuel.
