Due to the development of human societies, growing demand for energy sources, and the challenge of shortage or lack of them, industrial developed countries and developing countries have begun many studies on renewable energy sources in nature, especially solar energy, wind, waves, geothermal, hydro, biomass, etc. Moreover, by using these energy sources, some problems such as environmental pollution, changes in the Earth’s climate, and deterioration of resources will be removed. But with all these interpretations, the process of making these energy resources compatible with the current system of world energy consumption is followed by some problems; in recent decades, the world’s most important scientific studies have been done on the review and resolve of them. The purpose of this paper is to determine the Iran’s place in the use of these energy sources compared to international standards, and Iran’s available potentials for employing these sources properly for an optimal usage.
