    Nine years after the war and with billions of US dollars spent, electricity is still in short supply in Iraq.

    The government is looking to use electricity-generating ships to meet the expected uptick in demand in the coming summer months.

    In electricity-strapped provinces like Basra, where the power generated by a Turkish 'floating electricity plant' is diverted to the national grid, there is an especially high need.
