Another 20 MW solar plant was connected to the grid in the Iranian southeastern province of Kerman, where at the same time construction started on a 100 MW PV facility.
The Iranian government is seeking to create awareness of the advantages of the FIT program for PV projects not exceeding 100 kW in size.
Interview: Seyed Moslem Mousavi, Chief executive officer of The Iran Renewable Energy Association, revealed that large volumes of grid-connected PV power are expected to come online this year in Iran, and that, however, projects realized with locally manufactured PV modules, which have right to higher FITs, are still missing.
Between 750 MW and 800 MW of renewable energy generation capacity will be installed in Iran in the country’s current calender year. Most of this capacity will come from solar and wind. Meanwhile, the country has reached approximately 22 MW of cumulative installed solar capacity, as of the end of February 2017.
Swiss company New Energy Solutions will begin construction of four solar farms in Iran in March, with a combined capacity of 120 MW, as Iran remains solar’s ultimate unknown quantity.
