imagine iran becoming electricity independant (from non-renewable sources), imagine all of iran with clean solar and wind power, what a day it would be when iran announces 100% of its electricity is from clean , renewable sources

People also need to have the culture for it. I doubt most Iranians care anyway about renewable energy. Seems like the Rouhani government itself cares much more about this than many Iranian people.

most people in the world probably dont care, it is sad, but that is reality

a few people exist and carry the rest of the country and make good decisions, a population can be saved with the minds of a few. it has always been a few people that have helped the rest improve and come out of darkness


hopefully the wiser iranians help the other iranians realize what is good and bad

This is a culture of society and comes in stages and needs a period of time but just started something good ..
Partial environmental protection and clean energy I think in iran now there is a popular and community movement and popular pressure forces on the state to expand the provision of clean energy and environmental protection

Iran Plans to Promote CNG to Curb Gasoline Demand

Quote:
Cutting the price of compressed natural gas for domestic consumers is imperative to reduce gasoline consumption and imports, despite the rise in fuel production in recent months, the head of Alternative Fuels Union said on Sunday.

“The share of CNG among the fuels for transportation is between 21% and 23% currently, but it can increase to 45-50% if consumers are encouraged to use more of the clean fuel by giving incentives such as price cut,” Ali Mahmoudian was also quoted as saying by ISNA.

State-owned Alternative Fuels Union was established earlier this year to speed up plans to promote the consumption of cleaner fuels, such as CNG.

“The price of CNG at filling stations is three times higher than gas supplies to the residential sector, thus the union has asked the Oil Ministry for a 1,500-rial (4.5 cents) per cubic meter price cut in CNG prices,” he said.

If the ministry endorses the proposal, the CNG price will be cut to around 9 cents from the approximately 12.6 cents per cubic meter.

Mahmoudian forecast that CNG consumption will increase by 7-9 mcm/d within three months of implementing the scheme.

"Average consumption of gasoline since the beginning of the present fiscal year in March has reached 80 million liters per day, indicating an 8.5% rise compared with the corresponding period of last year," he said.

The official noted that Iran imports between 10 and 12 million liters of gasoline per day to meet the soaring demand.

It comes as gas production capacity has reached 885 million cubic meters per day, as the higher output can help increase CNG supplies at filling stations and ease gasoline demand.

Tehran seeks to raise gas production capacity to 1 billion cubic meters per day by March 2018 on the back of bigger supplies from South Pars, the world's largest gas field shared with Qatar in the Persian Gulf.

Mahmoudian said that currently, about 2,400 CNG stations are operational nationwide, with a capacity to supply 40-50 mcm/d. Actual daily supply of the fuel at filling stations is about 20-21 mcm/d on average.

that is true. there is a growing green culture in iran and especially now with water shortages many more people are becoming aware of environment issues in a serious way. tv programs are made for it also

Yazd Solar Power Ventures Underway

Quote:
The sun-drenched province of Yazd in central Iran is envisioned to emerge as a hotspot for solar power ventures, a local energy official said. Mohammad Hassan Sabbaghzadegan, managing director of Yazd Regional Electricity Company, said two dozen solar power project are planned to be set up in the desert province, ISNA reported.

“A total of 24 solar projects, with a combined electricity generation capacity of 455 megawatts, are planned to be developed across Yazd, with the Energy Ministry already in agreement on guaranteed purchase of electric output of 13 solar plants,” he said.

As per the terms of such deals, the government guarantees the purchase of electricity from solar plants for 20 years to promote and shore up investments in renewable energies.

The 13 solar power plants will have a combined power generating capacity of 120 MW, three of which are forecast to go on stream by March 2018, the end of the present fiscal year.

"The new solar ventures will help Yazd supply electricity to the adjacent Isfahan, Semnan, South Khorasan, Kerman and Fars provinces," Sabbaghzadegan said.

The share of renewables in Iran’s energy mix is around 240 MW, or just around 0.3% of total installed power generation capacity of 76,000 MW.

According to the Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Organization, plans are in place to launch 5,000 MW in new renewable capacity, including solar and wind, by 2022.

Earth Sheltering

Taking stock of Yazd’s hot and dry climate, plans call for the construction of earth sheltered homes, which employ the maximum geothermal and solar energies to heat and light the interior.

Earth sheltering is the architectural practice of using earth against building walls for external thermal mass, to reduce heat loss and easily maintain a steady indoor air temperature.

It has become increasingly popular in modern times, especially among environmentalists and advocates of passive solar and sustainable architecture.

According to Sabbaghzadegan, Yazd Regional Electricity Company has so far concluded two contracts on building earth sheltered homes in the province.

Iran ready to scrap nuclear deal ‘within hours’ if US imposes new sanctions – Rouhani

I'm worried about the power generation industry in Iran in the event that it pulls out of the JCPOA due to US sanctions.
It could be that it will pull out and not do anything that would have violated it anyway and Europe will be too tired of doing useless US/Israel sanctions politics to re-impose the sanctions.

The thing is that Nuclear energy is really expensive and inefficient, especially if Iran is doing it on it's own despite targeted attempts to thwart the project. As new renewable energy sources just keep getting cheaper and cheaper, nuclear is becoming a huge waste of money and resources. So it's really wouldn't be in Iran's interest to start the program again even if there were no political issues around it.

But the danger is maybe Iran will re-start the project and expand it anyway just to spite the US, and in doing so, ******* up the government budget, the domestic energy market, progress of renewable energy, Iran's international credibility, the economy and potentially the environment. The US is so crazy and unpredictable now they might even want to start a proper war this time.

Hopefully they're wiser than that and will resist falling back into nuclear politics with the US.

Norway's Scatec Solar in talks to boost Iran's solar power
Lefteris Karagiannopoulos

, 2017. REUTERS/Lefteris Karagiannopoulos
OSLO (Reuters) - Norway’s Scatec Solar is in talks to build its first solar power plants in Iran, its chief executive told Reuters, joining a wave of foreign energy firms looking to invest in the oil major.

The Oslo-listed firm, which builds and operates solar power plants worldwide, wants to generate 120 megawatts of power in Iran, rising to 500 MW later.

“I wouldn’t like to say by when we expect a signed deal but we are actively working on it,” CEO Raymond Carlsen said in an interview.

The initial project under discussion would cost $120 million per 100 MW installed, he said, or roughly $132 million.

Iran’s firms and 80 million inhabitants are heavily reliant on natural gas and oil to generate power. However, air pollution is helping drive Iranian interest in expanding renewable energy capacity.

Iran’s installed solar energy capacity is currently 53 MW, according to Iranian energy ministry data, but 76 firms have signed deals to study building an extra 932 MW of capacity.

Foreign energy companies are stepping up investment in Iran following the lifting of some international sanctions after the signing of a 2015 nuclear deal, but challenges remain.

Among them is persuading international banks to do business with Iran due to concerns they could fall foul of U.S. sanctions if they process transactions with the Islamic Republic.

Another is to guarantee a stable source of revenue to justify the investment.

Scatec Solar said Iranian and Norwegian authorities were trying to help the company secure financing for the project.

“They (Norway) will provide us with guarantees that will enable us to raise international and domestic financing,” said Chief Financial Officer Mikkel Toerud. Oslo was also willing to help finance future projects in Iran, he added.

The firm, which already works in South Africa, Rwanda, Jordan and Brazil, is seeking to break into other markets, including Myanmar, Pakistan and Bangladesh.

Carlsen said the company was not looking at new projects in Europe - it has a presence in the Czech Republic - where the returns on investment are not as good as in other markets.

Scatec Solar’s total production capacity is currently 322 MW, with a backlog of projects equivalent to 1.8 gigawatts (GW).

Toerud said with some projects due for completion next year, Scatec expected its dividend payment in 2019 to rise.

Dividend payments next year are projected to be stable at 73 million Norwegian crowns ($9.32 million). It currently pays out 50 percent of its electricity revenues as a dividend.

That's the way to go. Renewables have a huge potential in Iran. Wind alone can supply more than 1.5x present usage. Solar is even more promising. But the industry has to become self-sufficient and indeginious quickly because the running costs of repairs are quite high and it could cripple the whole industry if we have to rely on imports for the spare parts. Great start for now though.

there was a study which described iran as one of the best places worldwide for these kind of investments

the government is heavily investing in the central regions of iran
tourism,infrastructure,energy etc

but they dont divert the money in wind energie for the kurdish and azeri regions
do you see this too?

The wind corridors that are most suitable is just by Qazvin and along Northern Sistan and South Khorasan to south of Mashhad. The Qazvin one is being worked on heavily right now but the Khorasan one which is potentially far more important is still not being used. There is a smattering just north of Tabriz too but there the winds change direction too often and are far less reliable. I am not sure of the Kurdish areas as yet but I would say the potential for Hydropower in those regions would probably be far greater initially anyway. Wind is not as straightforward as Solar but it is far less environmentally dirty. Manufacturing solar panels with their cells is not as environmentally friendly as its often assumed. You don't have that with Wind or Hydro really.
