Iran and Germany discuss renewable energy sources

A fresh round of talks between Iran and Germany over water and power industries kicked off in Tehran upon arrival of a delegation of Germany’s Federal Ministry of Education and Research headed by the State Secretary, Georg Schütte.

The main axis of talks was implementation of research projects in water, power and renewable energy sectors aiming to increase efficiency in the country’s generation, transmission and distribution networks.

Iranian Deputy Energy Minister Aliakbar Mohajeri described details of new cooperation between Iran and Germany saying “the two sides hold a long history of collaboration in research areas though the ties were loosened during sanction year and were revived in the post-JCPOA era.”

The two sides have also reached agreement over financing and implementation of a comprehensive plan for integrated management of water resources along Zayanderud river in Iran, the Mehr news agency reports.
