Iran, ideal destination for renewable energies investment: VP

Tehran, Jan 3, IRNA - Studies show that Iran is among the world’s most suitable destinations for making investment in the field of generating renewable energies, particularly solar energy, said the head of Iran’s Department of the Environment (DOE).

Addressing the professors and members of the academic board of Tarbiat Modares University on Sunday, Masoumeh Ebtekar stressed that DOE and universities can enhance cooperation in conducting applied studies in the field of environment.

“We do not have much time to waste. Currently, the country is faced with serious environmental challenges and crises. We are highly required to work out scientific strategies and make effective decisions, based on applied studies, to overcome the problems,” she added quoted by Shana.

The government is required to adopt a more practical approach to addressing the country’s environmental challenges in the Sixth Five-Year Economic Development Plan (2016-21).

“We should further promote using green and environment-friendly technologies in domestic industries. In the post-sanctions era, we will have a great deal of favorable opportunities to expand foreign cooperation in this regard and increase investments in the field of environment,” Ebtekar said.
