چکیده:

Within geographical boundaries of the Islamic Republic of Iran, there is a large number of potential sites with solar insolation levels above 1800 kWh/m2.yr, in fact a basic need for very existence of any Solar Thermal Power Plant (STPP), comparable to the best solar sites anywhere in the world. Although vast volumes of natural gas as well as crude oil lies beneath the territory, Iran recognizes i I’s responsibility towards the global efforts to preserve the earth’s environment by switching into clean energy sources. such as solar.
The evaluation of various key factors encountered in site selection for the first STPP in Iran has led to recognition of Yazd with high priority among the potential regions. Technological advances governed in the field of large scale STPPs specifically Parabolic Trough Electricity Generators known as SEGS ensures dependable mid to base load power production with the benefits of reduces unwanted gas emissions as well as conservation of precious national oil & gas resources.
Although the SEGS technology is commercially available in different solar field arrangements or operating modes,but it requires higher specific investment cost in comparison to conventional fossil fired steam, gas or combined cycle power plants. This drawback is expected to fade upto
50% of the total investment cost simply by utilization of domestic design & engineering abilities, material and equipment . Results of the feasibility study is a major step towards introduction of solar thermal electricity into the national grid as well as attraction of world bank funds and the other international grants.
