Turkey Renewables Report

BMI View: Turkey will remain committed to its renewable energy expansion plans in order to reduce fuel import costs at a time when power consumption in the country is set to surge and the lira continues to depreciate. Wind will drive the renewables expansion ; but we highlight that the upsides are mounting for growth in solar capacity.

Despite the dominance of thermal generated electricity, Turkey's renewables sector presents significant growth potential across most technologies, including wind, geothermal and solar power. Turkey has made impressive progress with its renewable energy expansion over the last decade, and across both Western Europe and Central and Eastern Europe (CEE), we see Turkey emerging as a key market; with strong project pipelines, robust growth potential and relatively attractive investment climate for developers.

Key Trends And Developments

  • Zorlu Enerji's wholly-owned subsidiary Zorlu Dogal Elektrik Uretimi received the preliminary licence for the 100MW Kizildere III JES geothermal project in Denizli in December 2014. The license was awarded by the Turkish energy market regulator.

  • Chinese solar modules manufacturer China Sunergy (CSUN) signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Turkish financial leasing company Deniz Finansal Kiralama to fund solar projects in Turkey in November 2014. According to the terms of the MoU, DenizLeasing will facilitate and provide capital leasing for up to 100MW of PV projects, deploying CSUN's solar modules and other components.

  • In January 2015, Turkey's Energy and Natural Resources Minister Taner Yildiz stated that exploiting renewable resources remains a priority for the government and the country had saved USD850mn in energy imports over 2014 as a direct result of the expanding renewables industry.

  • The World Bank announced in July 2014 that it has provided the Turkish grid operator with a USD350mn loan to help integrate wind projects into the national grid system.
