Figure 3.5: Southern Corridor Yearly Demand Breakdown (historical and forecast)
The reasons for the higher expected increase in the power generation sector are the relative immaturity of gas fired power generation sector in several countries (see Fig. 3.9 on the following pages) and the comple- mentarity with renewable energy sources that CCGT power plants can offer. The maps in the following Figures 3.6 to 3.8 depict the demand evolution per country in total and broken down to Residential-Commercial-Industrial (RCI) and Power Generation 3) .
