On November 15, 2016 leading representatives from politics and business will gather for the Intersolar Summit Iran in Tehran to discuss the market potential and investment chances in the region's emerging solar market. Renowned government officials, including Mr. Houshang Falahatian, Deputy Energy Minister for Energy and Electricity Affairs of the Islamic Republic of Iran and Dr. Seyed Mohammad Sadeghzadeh, Managing Director of Renewable Energy Organization of Iran (SUNA), will provide latest insights on the renewable energy targets and regulatory frameworks in Iran within their keynote speeches. The conference program focuses on the specific conditions and characteristics of the solar industry in Iran and constitutes an excellent platform for the development and expansion of business relationships in the entire region.
Pforzheim / Tehran, November 8, 2016 - Signs are highly positive that the Islamic Republic of Iran can become one of the world's top emerging markets for solar energy - excellent solar irradiation combined with a continuously growing electricity demand and relatively high generation costs of conventional energy reflect the country's enormous PV potential. The positive market outlook was underlined by Mr. Hamid Chitchian, Minister of Energy of the Islamic Republic of Iran, who recently said that Iran plans to generate 7.5 gigawatts (GW) of electricity from renewable sources by 2030. Iran's Deputy Energy Minister for Energy and Electricity Affairs, Mr. Houshang Falahatian also highlighted the financial perspective - according to him, approximately $25 billion investment is required in Iran's electrify sector by 2021 in order to materialize 5.5 percent annual growth planned for the country's electrify generation.
Against the backdrop of these favorable conditions, the country gets highly interesting for domestic and international solar stakeholders. It will be essential to involve foreign partners in solar projects, since lacking access to advanced solar technologies represented logistical challenges. The recent removal of sanctions speeds up market development and enables an international knowledge transfer to ensure a flourishing solar future for Iran. "We are delighted to see such strong interest from both the international as well as local end. Having a perfect mix of the most renowned solar companies and Iranian government bodies, the Intersolar Summit Iran is undoubtedly the most cost and time efficient way for stakeholders from across the value chain to connect and pave the way for future business in Iran", says Markus Elsässer, CEO of Solar Promotion International GmbH.
The Intersolar Summit Iran, which takes place on November 15 in the Iranian capital of Tehran, provides participants with a very special opportunity to obtain latest solar market knowledge of the region. Conference topics are specifically tailored to meet the needs of domestic and international players alike, thus making the event highly attractive for multiple target groups. High-level expert speakers will address burning questions, such as the implications and potential after lifting of the sanctions, and make 360° reviews on potential investment opportunities including the role of foreign companies, technical challenges and opportunities as well as international best practices to achieve sustainable market development and creation of a local supply chain. Moreover, delegates and expert speakers will get the chance to a deeper dive into five special topic areas during the breakout sessions (special interest group discussions) at the end of the day.
In addition, the Intersolar Summit Iran also serves and functions as an excellent opportunity to enrich and expand existing contacts and initiate new business relationships. Extended networking breaks and the accompanying tabletop exhibition will connect suppliers and buyers and foster business dialogues.
Esteemed keynote speakers are Mr. Houshang Falahatian, Deputy Energy Minister for Energy and Electricity Affairs of the Islamic Republic of Iran and Dr. Seyed Mohammad Sadeghzadeh, Managing Director of Renewable Energy Organization of Iran (SUNA).
