According to the renewable energy organization of Iran (SUNA), until the end of February 2017, Iran’s total installed volume of renewable power plants has gone above 340 MW!

Many of foreign companies and investors intend to participate in Iran’s renewable energy investments after the elimination of the sanctions! These foreign companies are mostly from Germany, Norway, Denmark, Turkey, China, South Korea and Hungary.
