BMI View: Iran's plans to expand its energy sector continue to be hampered by ongoing uncertainty over the outcome of international talks to loosen sanctions on the country. It appears clear that the government intends to press ahead with the construction of nuclear power stations, but perilous government finances could threaten its ability to fund new power infrastructure projects. That said, if a deal is reached and Tehran continues investing in the sector, there is significant potential for rapid growth in the years ahead.

Despite ongoing controversy over the country's pursuit of nuclear power, the Iranian energy sector is in reasonably good shape. With abundant supplies of natural resources, Iran will continue to rely largely on conventional thermal sources for electricity generation for the foreseeable future, and many of the power projects that are currently under construction are slated to increase the nation's natural gas generation capacity. At the same time, the government appears committed to plans to increase its nuclear capacity - plans which has been boosted by progress in talks between Iran and the international community, which could see the US, the EU and other nations ease sanctions on Iran in return for the country ending its pursuit of military nuclear capability. Although the Bushehr plant (at present the country's only nuclear reactor) has suffered from significant teething problems, it has now become fully operational. That said, progress towards a more wide-ranging deal remains elusive, and as a result the outlook for the country's nuclear ambitions remains uncertain. In particular, with the recent dip in international energy prices forcing the government to cut back on social spending, there is a risk of greater political unrest in the coming months.
