Tehran Times:

The capacity of Iran’s renewable power plants has increased by two percent in the first month of the current Iranian calendar year (March 21-April 20), from its previous month.

As reported, the total capacity of the country's renewable power plants reached 1,042.68 megawatts (MW) by April 20.

The total capacity of the country’s wind power plants stood at 354.89 MW, while the solar farms’ capacity reached 449.55 MW.

Hydroelectric power plants also reached a capacity of 100.78 MW, while the capacity of biomass power plants stood at 12.5 MW.

Iranian Energy Ministry has put it on the agenda to add 10,000 MW to the capacity of the country’s renewable power plants by the end of the current government’s administration (August 2025).

Back in January 2022, the Energy Ministry and some of the country’s private contractors signed memorandums of understanding (MOU) for cooperation in the construction of new renewable power plants across the country.
