Iran has the world’s fourth largest proven reserves of oil, and the second largest reserves of natural gas, yet they are determined to reduce their own domestic use of these fossil fuels and develop a strong renewable sector. A study by the Monash University and the Centre of Renewable Energy Research and Application in Tehran, the nation has the potential to develop 6.5 GW of power from solar and wind.

So far SUMA has signed contracts with the private sector for the development of 12,000 megawatts of electricity from renewable sources.
