Abdol Hamid Farzam Behoudi, advisor to Iran's deputy energy minister for electricity, has told the Iran Daily that Iran is set to export power to Lebanon within days. Under the scheme, the country will export 50 MW of output during the first phase, and 200 MW thereafter. A similar scheme is then planned to export power to Syria.

In the same report, the official states that power will be exported via Syria, following the signing of agreements between energy ministers from Iran, Syria and Lebanon.

Iran currently claims to export electricity to countries including around 1,000 MW to neighbouring Iraq, Pakistan and Turkey. The country has earlier reported exports totaling 398.9 GW hours of exported power since March.
