Turkey plans to make greater use of its renewable energy resources by 2023, according to the Energy and Natural Resources Ministry.

According to the Electricity Energy Market and Supply Safety Strategy document, Turkey aims to exploit 36 000 MW of hydropower, 20 000 MW of wind power, 3000 MW of solar, 600 MW of geothermal and 2000 MW of biomass.

The country’s full renewable energy potential is estimated to be 136 600 MW, but currently it only utilises 13.6 per cent.

Ankara’s goal is to raise renewable energy’s share of electricity production to 30 per cent, while simultaneously reducing natural gas’ share to 30 per cent within this period
