Key Market Trends
Deployment in the Onshore Wind Energy is Expected to Drive the Market
As the demand for energy is rising, Iran is turning towards the adoption of renewable energy as it has the ability to provide clean energy. The adoption of onshore wind energy with advanced technology attracts companies for high investment.
Wind energy in Iran has great potential. Iran’s 61.2 MW Sihapoush wind farm, located in the north-western province of Qazvin, is the country's largest project, which has been fully commissioned in 2018.
Manjil Wind Farm Site, Binalood Wind Farm Site, Zabol – Sistan, Babakoohi – Shiraz, Oun ebn-e-Ali-Tabriz, Sar Ein (Ardebil), Seffeh – Isfahan, Mahshahr, Nir, Sarab, Khaaf – Khorasan Razavi, Takestan, Nishabour – Binalood are some of the wind power plants operating in Iran.
The Aqkand Wind Farm opened in 2019, located in the northwestern city of Mianeh, East Azarbaijan Province, which consists of 20 wind turbines with a total capacity of 50 megawatts (MW) is expected to generate 175 GWh of electricity a year.
By the end of 2019, Iran has 302.2 MW of installed wind capacity. By location of deployment, the onshore wing energy is expected to drive the market during the forecast period, owing to declining costs and improved technology.

Increasing Deployment of Solar PV to Hinder the Growth of the Market
Iran has a very vast solar energy potential, with about 300 clear sunny days in a year and an average potential yield of 4.5 to 5.5 kilowatt-hours per square meter per day.
Iran has shown interest in renewable energy technologies, including solar power, and is keen to exploit its abundant solar resource with newer technology. With the anticipated improvements in technology and decreasing cost, investors/developers are expected to focus on the commercial viability of solar projects.
As of 2019, the installed capacity of solar energy in Iran is 367.1 MW. Moreover, the increasing deployment of solar PV systems across the nation is likely to hinder the growth and share of wind power in the country's renewable energy mix in the coming years.
