This report provides the outcomes of the CTCN technical Assistance Response plan regarding the assessment of current PV production capacity and initial assessment to identify status of local PV technology, material supply and, knowledge infrastructure, that need to be resolved to establish a striving PV industry in Iran. Following an initial visit to Iran a study on the involvement of the Iranian government with respect to countries implementation plans and policies regarding PV solar production capabilities was performed. Moreover, the report comprises a gap analysis to determining the necessary grade of local manufactured panel efficiency in order to keep competition with foreign import produce. In addition a 200 MW PV manufacturing plant analysis is exercised to identify the value chain for production in Iran. Advise on solar cell type to be produced locally and a solar cell and panel roll out scenario is part of the report. Supporting the private sector Industry recommendations are provided regarding the establishment of a local applied research center.
