Türkiye’nin Gelecekteki Enerji Karmasında Yenilenebilir Enerjilerin Rolü
Turkish energy sector is characterized by a steady demand growth on one hand and the challenge of reducing the energy imports for the sake of controlling the current account deficit, one of the major problems of the Turkish economy, on the other hand. Another important challenge is to significantly reduce the carbon emissions without harming the competitiveness of the Turkish economy through high energy costs.
The increasing competitiveness of renewable technologies provide for an opportunity to answer these challenges at the same time, so that renewables’ role in the Turkish energy-mix will be more and more important.
