Why use projections when we now have real figures for this time period? Iran already reached ~15% power generation by hydropower in points of 2019, with on average 10% of their power coming from hydro alone in 2019, twice their pre-2017 targets for 2021. As your data points out, their current issue is not willpower, or targets that they don't intend to meet. Their current key issue is lack of funding and droughts impacting their existing investments.

Pre-pandemic I was working in mainland Europe and upon my return to the UK it was genuinely like going backwards 50 years, The UK keeps going from bad to worse every year because our politicians are Eton morons, Quite annoys me as there are a lot of good people in the UK but the government is utterly inept.
True, our energy market is a mess here since Thatcher's privatisation, it is now back to a Big Six oligopoly maintained by an illusion of competition. British energy companies don't actually have to do anything useful at all, they simply "buy energy" on the wholesale market and resell it to consumers at a profit, a very abstract and silly process that essentially means they can siphon off money from British consumers while delivering nothing of value, hence why British tax payers have funded so much of France's Nuclear power infrastructure via EDF. No small competitors can join and survive because there's no way for them to compete, except for selling energy at a loss, which is unsustainable for all but the largest six companies.

they are at place 18 behind switzerland and austria when it comes to hydro power.

you mentioned solar.... 0.4%.

they search for new ways. but they are not pinacles of renewable energy.
that´s what i am saying.

Fair enough I'd agree with that, though ofc where they place with hydropower varies a lot more year on year that with other nations, due to their climate and the frequency of the droughts they now experience, that they did not anticipate when they started investing heavily in hydropower a decade ago.

Plus it's basically impossible to be a leader in renewable tech unless you're already a developed nation or a very geographically lucky one, and every developed nation has far larger historic emissions than these less developed nations, because we only got to our position of development by making use of cheap fossil fuel energy for a century. We in Western nations are in no position to be talking down to less developed nations like Iran or China about them doing what we've already done in terms of fossil fuel use, given we have known about the harm of fossil fuels and climate change as a scientific fact propagated by popular scientists like Carl Sagan for half a century now and we did nothing. What matters imo is whether these nations are making serious steps to make progress, and imo Iran are one of the poorer nations you'd say are doing a better job than most at the moment with their direction going forward and one you'd expect to jump up the tables in the coming 5 years.
