Turkey’s Renewable Energy Sector from a Global Perspective

View this page in: Türkçe

Over the past few years, policymakers in Turkey have realised the role that renewable energy can play in expanding power generation and diversifying the energy supply in an environmentally sustainable way.

In this report, we evaluate Turkey’s Renewable Energy Support Mechanism and the state of the Turkish renewable energy sector.

Notably:

  • Turkey's reliance on imported natural gas for power generation has given rise to concerns over supply security and the country's growing current account deficit.
  • Support of domestic energy sources such as coal and renewables has gained a new urgency.
  • More steps need to be taken to improve the investment environment for renewable energy in Turkey.

We also discuss the expansion of Chinese manufacturing in the sector nad the significant problem many countries face with limitations of power transmission.
