CurrentFinancial Outlook andElectricityDemandGrowth




  • Turkey has substantial amount of renewable energy potential and the

  • utilization rates are growing. Hydro, wind and solar energy resources

  • are the major portions of our renewable portfolio.

  • Turkey has at least;

  • 160000 GWh/a. economichydro,

  • 48000 MW windcapacity

  • 380000 GWh/a. solar (*)

  • 31500 MWtgeothermalcapacity

  • 8,6 MTOE biomass

  • 1,5-2 MTOEbiogas

Energy Market –Structure


  • Energy security and sustainable energy supply are among the main policy concerns of Turkey. Turkey attributes significant importance to;

  • encouraging the energy production from renewables in a secure, economic and cost effective manner,

  • expanding the utilization of our renewable resources for generating electrical energy,

  • increasing the diversification of energy resources,

  • reducing greenhouse gas emissions,

  • making use of waste products and protecting the environment,

  • developing the related mechanical and/or electro-mechanicalmanufacturing sector.


  • Turkish Government revised the “Electricity Energy Market and Supply Security Strategy Paper” in 2009. In this paper, some targets defined related with renewables until 2023are as follows;

  • At least 30% of total electricity production from renewables,

  • The whole economically feasible hydropower potential of Turkey

  • will be provided for generating electrical energy,

  • 600 MWe geothermal energy will be implemented,

  • 20,000 MW capacity of wind power plant will be in operation,

  • Utilization of solar energy for generating electrical

  • energy will be expanded.


Untilnow, TEIAS has confirmedconnection of around 12.5 GW WPPs. TEIAS announcedinvestmentsin transmissioninfrastructureandthuswillbe ableto deliver 1 GW eachyearstartingfrom2013 until 2020. All in all, TEIAS has declaredthatthegridconnectionwill be abletosupportthe“20 GW WPP by 2023” target of SupplySecurityStrategyPaper.

Incentives provided in the New RenewableEnergyLaw

  • The New Law provides a Renewable Energy Support Mechanism ("Mechanism") which covers different incentives and benefits for renewable energy projects including feed-in tariffs (fixed minimum electricity sale prices). The New Law covers different feed-in tariffs depending on the type of the renewable energy projects as follows:

    • Turkish Lira equivalent of USD 0.073 per kWh for hydroelectric power plants,

    • Turkish Lira equivalent of USD 0.073 per kWh for wind power plants,

    • Turkish Lira equivalent of USD 0.105 per kWh for geothermal power plants,

    • Turkish Lira equivalent of USD 0.133 per kWh for biomass power plants, and

    • Turkish Lira equivalent of USD 0.133 per kWh for solar power plants.

  • The above mentioned feed-in tariffs will be applicable for the legal entities holding generation licenses which start operations during the period from 18 May 2005 to 31 December 2015 and for a period of ten years from the operation date.

  • The New Law also features further price incentives from 0,004 to 0,024 kWh for the license holders which use locally produced mechanical and/or electro-mechanical equipment/components in renewable energy facilities, for a five-year term provided that they start producing energy before the end of 2015.

Incentives provided in the New RenewableEnergyLaw

  • Purchase guarantee and guaranteed feed price,

  • An option to make use of forested land and state-owned land to construct a renewable energy plant,

  • A 99 per cent reduction in the license application fees,

  • Exemption from annual license fee payments,

  • Ability to purchase electricity from private wholesale andgenerationcompanies,

  • Promote the manufacturing of renewable energy plant equipment in Turkey,

  • Priorityforsystemconnection,

  • Purchasingpriority,

  • Eligibleconsumers (>25000 kWh/year),

  • Renewable energy plant investments up to 500kW and micro-cogeneration plant investments are exempt from license and company establishment requirements and they can be connected to the grid,

  • WPPs lower than 10 MW capacity are exemptfrom EIA reportliability,

  • Additionalrevenue generation for renewable power projectsexists in Turkey through voluntary or verifiedemissionreductioncredits (VERs),

  • Others (localandotherministries)…
