Opportunities to construction renewable energy power plants in Iran

Prospect of Development
According to guidelines set by The Excellency Supreme Leader of Islamic Republic of Iran, which determines the policy and planning framework of entire executive authorities of the country, developing renewable energy resources and power plants is necessary.
The development of 5000 MW installed capacity of renewable power plants, is set as a main goal in the next 5 years.
This goal will be achieved mainly by interaction of private sector through guaranteed electricity purchase.

Law and Regulation
According to Iran laws and Regulations, Ministry of Energy is obliged to Purchase Electricity from Power plants established by private sector with specific tariffs:
Article 62, Part of The Government’s Financial Regulations Act, that was legislated in 1380(2001), has obliged the Ministry of Energy to purchase electricity produced from non-governmental renewable power plants.
Article 61, The Law of Modifying Consumption Patterns that is a permanent law and was legislated in 1390(2011), also obliged MOE to purchase electricity through long term contracts with guaranteed tariff.
Paragraph B of Article 133,The fifth 5-year plan of development of the country , legislated by the Parliament  in 1389(2010) , & its executive instruction was approved by the Council of Ministers , allows Ministry of Energy to purchase RE electricity through long term contracts and with adjusted tariffs  according to local inflation & fluctuation in currency rates.
Financial Sources needed will come from 1) benefits of fossil fuel saving 2) environmental benefits and 3) energy conversion expenses.

Current year tariffs in (2016)
In this year, for the first time, the purchase price of electricity from renewable energy power plants has been based on different rates for different types of renewable energy technologies. The size of the power plants is considered as another factor in defining price of electricity.
The average rate on the basis of the formula in article 133 is calculated 4873 Rials per kWh and then by taking the equal rate of return on investment and the capacity of development of each type, different prices are determined.
The announced rates will be valid for the first 10 years of guaranteed purchase contract, and in second 10-year, the rate will be decreased by 0.7 factor (expect for wind power plants).
For wind power plants it will be multiplied by a factor between 0.4 and 1 according to production plant factor in the first 10 years.
In all 20 years of contract period, the rate based on formula adjusted by the rate of inflation in country and exchange rate fluctuation.

Foreign Investment Promotion and Protection Act (FIPPA)
The law protecting foreign investment in Iran is the Foreign Investment Promotion and Protection Act ratified in 2002 which is referred to as FIPPA.
The scope of applicability of the FIPPA extends to the territory of the Islamic Republic of Iran under which all foreign investors may invest in the Country and enjoy the privileges available there under, a FIPPA allows investors to invest with greater confidence.

Invite to Invest

Iran’s Sixth Development Plan also provided for the installation of 500 MW of new solar capacity by 2018. Iran’s climate is diverse, and many of its regions are arid. Because the south, northwest and southeast regions receive around 300 days of sun per year, they are uniquely suited for solar energy. The Iranian government has prioritized the central region in particular due to its climate and proximity to the national power grid.
