Iran to push wind power technology

Iran is planning a series of new wind farm plants with a total production capacity of 20 megawatts. The Renewable Energy Organisation of Iran (SUNA) put the production capacity of the country’s wind energy 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 turbiness are already under construction in Isfahan and Sarein, and 100 bn riyals has been made available by the government for the development of further wind farm facilities.
