Increasing the Share of Renewables in Turkey’s Power System
The use of renewable energy resources, primarily wind and solar, is expected to grow significantly within Turkey’s power system. There has been tremendous growth in the installed renewable electricity generation capacity in recent years and Turkey saw a record year in 2017. As deployment of renewable electricity generation technologies is on the eve of acceleration, there is a need to better understand how the rising share of wind and solar will aff ect Turkey’s power system.
Lessons from global experIences for acceleratIng energy transItIon In Turkey through solar and wInd power
As Turkey advances its energy transition, it can also learn from the useful lessons and experiences of other countries in order to accelerate progress in meeting its national policy goals. National energy transition narratives around the world involve both successes and failures. However, they provide firm evidence that it is possible in all countries to build a system that is cleaner, more efficient, and more reliable by harnessing the local potential of wind and solar energy.
