The Iranian renewables sector has become a key focus for renewable energy developers, investors and financiers since the lifting of nuclear-related sanctions this year. This has been helped by both the country’s high demand for electricity and the numerous incentives from the government to encourage a switch from hydrocarbons to renewable energy. The biggest challenge faced by developers remains the bankability of renewable energy projects in Iran. However, for the first-movers, the current tariff rates represent an opportunity to enter the market before the rates reduce to regionally benchmarked levels, and to position themselves for the major pipeline of future projects that will be required to meet Iran’s renewables ambitions.
