Iran Aims To Get International Solar Alliance Membership
Currently, the share of renewables in Iran's power generation is only a little over 1.1%. According to the Ministry of Energy, solar power plants have an annual production of 455.28 megawatts as well as a share of a little over 50 percent of renewable power. Wind power plants, on the other hand, have a share of 34.31%.
