Iran’s renewable power generation exceeds 2.83 billion kWh

This volume of clean energy was produced from July 2009 to late February 2019, which has cut the consumption of 804 million cubic meters of fossil fuels. It has also saved 623 million liters of water.

Moreover, harnessing the clean energy in the past nine years has helped the country curb the emission of 1. 953 million tons of greenhouse gases.

Renewable ventures are gaining popularity in the country; with more than 300 sunny days throughout the year, Iran has huge potential to expand solar energy infrastructure and attract foreign investments.

The country meets more than 80% of its electricity demand from thermal power plants that run on fossil fuels. Of the total 82,000 MW production capacity, only a meager amount of 680 MW goes to renewables.

Figures on Iran's power sector show that 42% of the country's renewable energies come from solar power, 41% from wind farms, 13% small from hydroelectric plants, 2% from heat recovery and 2% is constituted by biomass.



Mount Damavand is the highest peak in Iran and the highest volcano in Asia.

Things to Know Before Trip
