Early in June 2015, Ukrainian parliament adopted a Draft Law that contains various changes to the current feed-in tariff regime for solar plants in Ukraine, No. 2010-d of 19.05.2015. Due to several legislative barriers, such as a problematic local content requirement, the solar sector has stagnated for the last several years. The law amendment tackles many important barriers to pv systems.
After one decade of economic isolation and sanctions, Iran is allowed to re-open its economy for worldwide trade and foreign direct investments. Its significant market size provides new interesting opportunities for foreign investors. Especially the solar market seems to be very attractive. Recently, feed-in tariffs for PV-plants have been generously increased to 17 – 30 €-ct /kWh.
