Due to government funding constraints and financial pressures, private companies have taken on the mantle of developing renewable energy, head of Iran's Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Organization (SATBA) said.
"Since 2016 when the government called on the private sector to help develop renewables, installed capacity has risen by 70%," Seyed Mohammad Sadeqzadeh said, ISNA reported on Saturday.
Renewable energy production was around 300 megawatts in 2016. Now it is close to 750 MW and plans are underway to boost it further by 200 MW before the fiscal year is out in March.
