Iran to push wind farm technology
Greenhouse gas emissions and sustainability key drivers
Iran is planning a series of new wind farms with a total production capacity of 20 megawatts. The Renewable Energy Organisation of Iran (SUNA) put the production capacity of the country’s wind farms at 100 megawatts, and in a report by the IRNA, Iraj Harsini, a representative from SUNA, said that recognising windy places and attracting investors are the most important plans drawn up by the organisation, adding that the development of alternative energies can help Iran reduce greenhouse gas emissions and become more sustainable.
New wind farms are already under construction in Isfahan and Sarein, and 100bn riyals has been made available by the government for the development of further facilities.
