The Renewable Energy Future Iran 19 October 2016, Tehran

Solarplaza, the leading international Solar PV network, is proud to announce it will be organizing the ‘The Renewable Energy Future Iran’ conference (19 October 2016, Tehran): a unique event connecting 150+ international and local stakeholders to discuss wind and solar opportunities in this projected 5 GW market.


Keypoint in Iranian project development, as all over the globe, is the need for clear and concise financing plans. To reach a successful PPA a lot of work has to be put into attracting foreign investors. The local capital market has limited capabilities in project financing with interest rates over 20%. Foreign financiers can answer this need, where higher risk is met with rewarding returns, while their experience with RE project financing constitutes an asset and a solid base. Since companies are forbidden to trade construction permissions or PPAs, there is a real push for valuable partnerships and joint ventures.

Topics discussed will include: building Iran’s local RE market; key bankability challenges and solutions; technical and contractual risk and mitigation; closing of funding for projects; innovative financing models; as well as the opportunity to take part in both a networking drink and a business networking dinner.

Attending parties include both international and local investors and project developers, as well as a host of consultants, lawyers and local experts in the Iranian RE sector: a preliminary list of attendees can be found at


Solarplaza has been at the forefront of bringing together RE professionals since 2004, organizing over 80 events in more than 25 countries. Outside of its industry leading events in established markets throughout Europe and North America, Solarplaza has taken an active lead in facilitating solar discourse in the most exciting new RE markets, including Mexico, Chile, South Africa, Kenya and Colombia.
