Turkey Seeks 2,000 MW of Wind Power

Turkey’s energy regulator will auction contracts for 2,000 megawatts of wind power capacity next year, bringing forward a program originally to be completed by 2020.
Ankara-based Energy Market Regulatory Authority—aka EPDK—will collect preliminary license applications on Oct. 3 to Oct. 7, 2016, according to a decree published in the Official Gazette, Bloomberg reported.
Turkey has 4,032 MW of wind power from 101 plants as of the end of July, according to data provided by the state power transmission company Teias.  This compares with 3,630 MW from 90 plants at the end of 2014. The country’s total power capacity stood at 71,908 MW in July, according to Teias.
Energy Minister Taner Yildiz said in November that Turkey wanted to increase Turkey’s wind capacity to at least 20,000 MW and total installed electricity capacity to 110,000 MW by 2023. Natural gas and coal supply more than half of Turkey’s power, with hydroelectric units feeding about a third of the nation’s electricity.
