Energy policy -- Iran, Energy security, Renewable energy sources -- Iran -- Analysis, Bibliometrics


The Islamic Republic of Iran has attained an important p osition in international energy security mainly due to its large reserves of petroleum and natural gas (Iran ranks second in Natural Gas reserves and third in oil reserves). In recent years, petroleum and natural gas revenues represented almost 50% of the Iranian government’s budget. In addition to these abundant conventional sources of energy, the country also has opportunities and commitments to develop large renewable energy resources such as solar, wind, geothermal and hydro. This paper presents a review of the development of non-conventional energy sources in Iran and reports the results of a Bibliometric Analysis over the research studies that have focused on the topic.
