Studies on "Identifying and determining the potential of energy efficiency of local electricity consumption" for high-consumption provinces of the country and the role of renewable power plants in res

After stating that more than 33 percentage of electric energy in Iran is used for domestic purposes, Director General of Energy Potential and Resource Assessment Office added: "Currently, domestic electricity consumption per capita is reported as about 3050 kWh per subscriber a year which is dramatically over than the global criteria and standards."
Noting the 4.4 percentage annual growth of maximum electricity consumption, Dr. Satkin stated: "One of the reasons of increasing the peak usage electricity in the summer is using cooling facilities especially in the southern provinces of Iran in a way that more than 23 thousand Megawatt out of 57 thousand Megawatt of peak usage electricity in summer has been used for cooling purposes 4000 Megawatt of which belongs to cooling facilities in public sector and governmental organizations."
He then introduced the objective of the studies done by Energy Potential and Resource Assessment Office as providing proper strategic management in order to recognize the provincial potentials for optimizing electric energy in domestic section and added: "The studies show that Khuzestan, Hormozgan and Bushehr provinces have the record of domestic electric energy consumption with 25079 Million kWh consumption and if their gas air conditioners are replaced with high efficient ones there will be a 2260 kWh per year reduction in electric energy consumption which equals to 880 Megawatt virtual power station."
Noting the power generation from renewable power plants, he also stated: "From July 2009 to May 2019 the capacity of renewable energies in Iran has raised to 724 MW and according to the fact that most of the electricity produced in renewable power plants belong to first 6 months of the year and at the consumption peak in the summer, this power plant can play a big role in supplying electric energy in peak hours.
He then hoped that these studies can properly guide Iranian and international investors in domestic energy efficiency scope.
