Iran’s Power Generation Capacity to Rise by 5,000 MW in Months

With the implementation of new power generation projects, Iran’s total capacity to produce electricity will increase by about 5,000 megawatts (MW) by the end of the current Persian calendar year, (March 2019 – March 2020).

Since the beginning of the current Iranian year, the country has added 557 MW of capacity to the national grid, according to data released by companies active in the country’s power sector.

Iran’s nominal electricity generation capacity reached 80,311 MW at the end of last year and now, it has risen to 80,868 MW.

Data released by the Iran Grid Management Co., Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Organization, Thermal Power Plants Holding Company (TPPH), Iran Power Generation Transmission and Distribution Management Company (Tavanir), and Iran Water and Power Resources Development Co. (IWPC), shows that by the end of the current year, the country’s total capacity to produce electricity will increase by 4,827 MW.

In February 2018, Iranian Energy Minister Reza Ardekanian highlighted the country’s self-sufficiency in the area of power generation and said the Islamic Republic is the top producer of electricity in the Middle East.

About 90 percent of power generation equipment, even complicated parts like turbines and generators, are currently manufactured inside the country, the energy minister told reporters at the time.

He added that Iran’s capabilities in the area of power generation have developed over the past four decades so much that the country has become the top producer of electricity in the region.

“At present, we have energy exchanges with all the countries that share land borders with us,” he said.
