Turkey Breaks Record in Wind Power Generation
According to the official data, Turkey’s electricity generation from wind reached the highest share in renewable energy with 20.2 percent.
Turkey, which has become the 5th in Europe and 12th in the world in renewable energy installed power, ranks 1st in Europe in geothermal energy and 2nd in hydroelectricity.
Turkey also ranks 8th in Europe in solar, wind and biomass energy production.
The president of Turkish Wind Energy Association (TÜREB), Ebru Arıcı says that new records will inevitably be broken as new investments in wind become available within the framework of the Paris Agreement and Green Agreement targets.
Arıcı adds, “The wind industry in Turkey is at a highly developed point. Considering that 70% of what is produced today is exported, we can say that we have no problems in terms of quality.”
