Energy Today

The “Energy Newcomes” information and media group hit the ground running as a private-run entity in April 2009 after obtaining an official license – No. 76058 – from the Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guidance.

The group views its human resources – which bring together prominent academics, veteran journalists, experts in different energy fields, and staff members – as a great asset as it strives to fulfill its mission of “developing civil society, institutionalizing the culture of energy management, underlining environment protection, and promoting renewable energies”.
