MOSCOW, January 8 (RIA Novosti) - Iran’s electricity exports will increase 47 percent by March, Press TV reported on Tuesday.
Power exports will rise to 10 billion kilowatt hours (kWh) during the current calendar year ending in March, Iran’s Energy Minister Majid Namjou said.
Iran currently exports electricity to Afghanistan, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Iraq, Pakistan, Turkmenistan and Turkey and it is also planning to export to Syria and Lebanon through Iraq’s power grid, he added.
Iran can export up to 1,000 megawatts of electricity to Iraq and 500 MW to Syria.
By March 2015, Iran will boost its generation capacity by 25 gigawatts to 73 gigawatts, the minister said.

News that Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin would resign in order to run for the mayoral election in September came as quite a shock. Sobyanin’s political potential is fairly dubious, not to mention his approval ratings. He has not finished many of the projects he initiated and the electoral effect from these projects is expected to come a bit later than September 2013. Sobyanin’s opponents were not entirely unprepared for this blitzkrieg.
