Overview on renewables and SUNA initiatives

The new initiative for development of renewables in Iran is focussed around the SUNA proposal for power purchase based on a schedule of pre-set tariffs and a draft generic PPA to be used in all renewable energy power purchase agreements.

At the Intersolar Summit Iran on November 15, 2016 we will look at the tariff structure and the PPA terms and conditions. For this webinar we will look at a slightly wider focus on the risk factors and assessment of how to proceed.

Key issues to be considered:

  • Sovereign Guarantee
  • Currency Issues
  • Bankability and Corporate Governance
  • Land Availability Ownership and Leasing
