The demand for electricity in Iraq increased from 11,000 MW in 2007 to 16,000 MW in 2013, and is expected that this demand will be increased to more than 20000 MW in 2020. Iraq has been suffering from a shortage of processed electricity since 1991 and will increase if the current demand continues. The Iraqi government has begun to use solar energy to produce electricity as one of its future goals as part of its focus on reducing environmental damage and pollution of the country's atmosphere, soil, and water as well as working to determine the best ways to use renewable energy in the country. The Iraqi government is working with many local and international research bodies to study renewable resources to generate electricity. The availability of renewable energy sources locally and renewable, in addition to being environmentally friendly, is one of the most important factors determining the choice of new sources of energy. It can be said that solar energy in Iraq meets all these requirements. The level of solar energy density in this country is very high and among the desirable rates globally. As it is free energy for all, renewable for a long time, and does not harm the environment.
