Turkey’s geographical location is highly favorable for the utilization of solar energy. According to studies done by EIE, Turkey's average annual total sunshine is 2,640 hours (total daily 7.2 hours), average total radiation intensity 1,311 kWh / m²-year (daily total of 3.6 kWh/m²). According to the Ministry of Energy and Natural Recourses, the total amount of investments required to meet the energy demand in Turkey by 2023 is estimated to be around USD 110 billion, more than double the total amount invested in the last decade. Turkey’s energy policies and strategies are based on energy supply security, alternative energy resources, diversity of energy resources, utilization of domestic energy resources to create additional value to economy, liberalization of energy markets, and energy efficiency. Due to this perspective, special emphasis has been made to maximum utilization of local and renewable energy resources as highest priority. The next phase of renewable energy growth will require regulatory and administrative changes if Turkey wishes to use its full potential and accelerate the deployment in support of climate goals up to 2030.
The energy demand of Turkey was doubled between the years 2000–2010 and is expected to fourfold between the years 2000–2025. This rapid increase in demand is due to the high economic development rate of Turkey. The biggest growth area in recent years has been natural gas imported from Russia and Iran. In 1995, 20% of Turkey’s electricity needs were generated from natural gas. Today in 2016, that has increased to 44%. It is a dependence that the Turkish government would like to diminish. Turkey is able to meet only around 26 % of its total energy demand from its own domestic resources. There are plans for investment in wind power, nuclear power and an extra of hydropower.
The country’s main strategy to meet the growing need of power is to reduce the energy dependency by increasing the energy efficiency, increased use of renewable resources, nuclear sources, and connecting to the European power infrastructure.
