Iran to produce 7,500 mw electricity from renewable energy resources

The Iranian Energy Ministry plans to increase the volume of power generation through utilizing renewable energies.

 

"Renewable energies will account for the generation of 7,500 megawatts of new capacity for electricity generation by 2030," Energy Minister Hamid Chitchian said Monday.

He noted that his ministry also plans to improve the capacity of combined-cycle power plants in a bid to increase output by 50 percent.

In a relevant development last September, Deputy Energy Minister Houshang Falahatian said plans are underway to establish a special economic zone for renewable energies.
