Solar energy is the hugest energy resource in the world. This pure energy is cheap and eternal and is achievable in many regions of the earth. Restriction of fossil fuel sources and the consequences of using them in environmental and global climatological changes have created special opportunity for competition of solar energy with fossil energies especially in the countries with high potential of solar radiation. This research intends to assess solar energy status and development in Iran. In this research we have analyzed the status of solar power plants as well as different projects in this field in Iran.
