Iran Considers Developing Regional Power Grid Network

The ministry is planning to increase its electric power exchanges with regional countries.

Iran is in pursuit of creating an electric power transmission network in the region, Iranian Deputy Energy Minister Alireza Daemi said on Wednesday.

 The Iranian Energy Ministry, based on its vision plan, is working toward turning the country into a strategic electric power hub, Daemi said.

The ministry is planning to increase its electric power exchanges with regional countries, including Russia, Tajikistan and the Persian Gulf littoral states, he said.

'The current power grid network and the exchanges of electric power enable Iran to be connected to Georgia via Armenia's power grid and to Slovenia and Europe via Turkey,' the deputy energy minister said.

Daemi said that presently Iran is exchanging electric power with seven countries, including Armenia, the Republic of Azerbaijan, Turkey, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Turkmenistan, Iraq as well as the Nakhchivan Autonomous Republic.

Moreover, he said that Turkey, Iraq, Pakistan and Afghanistan import electric power from Iran.
