(Persia Digest) - Iran's largest solar panels production line with a 200MW capacity will be established by two Iranian and Chinese companies for the production of photovoltaic panels.
Iran is a country with great potential for new solar and wind energies. It is estimated that under the present conditions, it has a capacity to install between 15 to 20 thousand MW of wind power plants. This is by far higher for solar energy.
Government policy is to encourage investment in this sector and facilitate its development.
By introducing attractive tariffs for the purchase of guaranteed renewable electricity, especially from photovoltaic solar plants, the government has accelerated investment in these by the private sector and a considerable number of panels have already been installed in the country.
In the latest measures taken to advance renewable energies, a high-ranking delegation from the International Solar Energy Society (ISES) will be visiting Iran end of October with proposals of new projects to expand this sector.
ISES is headquartered in India. It was setup in 2015 after the Paris Conference jointly by the Indian prime minister and French president. It has more than 70 member countries at present.
Its projects to develop solar energy in Iran include funding for a 500MW solar energy plant buyback plan and job creation for ten thousand people in this sector which will be implemented by the ISES.
Simultaneously with the presence of the said delegation, a trade agreement will be signed between the Iranian and Chinese companies to build the photovoltaic panel production line in Iran with a 200MW capacity.
