Official: Iran biggest power producer in region

An advisor to Iran’s energy minister for international affairs said that the country is the top electricity producer in the region.

Thanks to the exchange of electrical energy with the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) member states, Iran’s electricity production capacity will increase, Mohammad Ali Farahnakian told IRNA on Wednesday.

Iran, India, and Russia are among the largest and most powerful electricity producers in the SCO and Iran is among the few countries that have big fossil fuel capacity as well, he said.

Due to its geolocation, Iran is connected to important markets which need electricity, such as Iraq with a 10,000MW deficit and Pakistan with 7,000MW deficit, which is a good advantage for all SCO member states, according to the official.

Farahnakian also stressed the importance of creating energy corridors, saying that the energy corridor of Iran, Azerbaijan, and Russia which is in the study phase will have the ability to transmit electricity between the countries.
