The signing of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action between the Iranian government and the PG+1, comprised of the five permanent members of the Security Council and Germany, an agreement aimed at bringing an end to sanctions on Iran through agreement on the country's nuclear programme, has precipitated considerable activity among foreign investors looking to take advantage of the country's considerable market for electricity, both in terms of domestic supply and export.

Since the signing of the agreement, several companies, many of them European, and several government delegations have visited Iran, signing agreements with the government aimed at installing a number of new power plants in the country.

BMI forecasts Iran's total power generation to be 258.11TWh in 2016, an increase of 1.55% on 2015's 254.17TWh. Between 2017 and 2024, BMI forecasts this output to increase at a year-on-year (y-o-y) average rate of 2.34% to 310.52TWh in 2024. This represents a slight revision on BMI's previous forecast for the period, when research suggested generation would increase by an average y-o-y rate of 2.73%.

According to BMI's research, Iran will have 80,864.37MW of installed capacity in 2016, representing a 0.37% increase on 2015's 80,409.30MW. During the period 2017 to 2024, this figure will increase at an average y-o-y rate of 1.9%, reaching 93,957MW by 2024.

Growth in the Iranian power sector will continue to be driven by gas-to-power, as the government seeks to take advantage of the country's abundant natural gas wealth. The government will also push ahead with its programme of converting older simple cycle units to combined cycle technology, thereby increasing efficiency and boosting capacity.
