350 domestic enterprises are also partaking in the exhibition, known as a good opportunity for enhancing marketing networks in the field of electric power industry.
This year, 20 Iranian “knowledge-based companies”, established by local intelligentsia in the electricity industry, are present in the exhibit.
A deputy energy minister said the 16th edition of the IEE is of greater significance than previous ones, as it comes in the post-sanctions era and follows the implementation of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), a nuclear agreement between Tehran and the Group 5+1 (Russia, China, the US, Britain, France and Germany).
The international exhibition showcases numerous electrical equipment such as power, electronics, electrical substations, power distribution and control, process control products, electricity measuring, automation systems and equipment, lighting systems, maintenance and services as well as renewable and new energies.
