Türkiye’s electrical energy put in capability has elevated by greater than threefold previously twenty years, whereas renewable power share has reached roughly 55% of the prevailing put in capability, Deputy Minister of Vitality and Pure Assets Abdullah Tancan mentioned Wednesday.
“Electrical energy put in capability, which was 31,846 megawatts (MW) in 2002, has elevated 3.3 occasions to achieve 105,135 MW by the top of July,” mentioned Tancan on the opening of the sixteenth EIF Vitality Congress and Truthful held within the southern province of Gaziantep.
Taking a look at electrical energy manufacturing, Tancan famous that electrical energy manufacturing had reached 326 billion kilowatts (kW) by the top of final 12 months, and Türkiye ranks fifth in renewable power put in capability in Europe and twelfth globally.
He additionally highlighted the nation’s place in gear manufacturing, saying: “We’re at present ranked thirteenth globally and sixth in Europe in gear manufacturing. Now we have made important progress in put in capability and manufacturing of renewable sources over the previous 21 years, with electrical energy put in capability growing 3.3 occasions from 31,846 megawatts in 2002 to 105,135 megawatts by the top of July.”
“Now we have elevated the share of renewable power in electrical energy manufacturing to 42%. Presently, our nation has roughly 10,398 MW of photo voltaic put in capability, with 10,169 photo voltaic power manufacturing amenities,” he famous.
Declaring that there are important targets concerning photo voltaic power within the Nationwide Vitality Plan, Tancan mentioned: “By 2035, we purpose so as to add a mean of three.5 gigawatts per 12 months, with 52 gigawatts out of 189 gigawatts of put in capability being derived from photo voltaic power sources.”
“Photo voltaic power might be one of many basic parts of power within the close to future and can proceed to develop. Moreover, producing native merchandise has develop into essential. Within the fields of wind and photo voltaic, many gear gadgets at the moment are being produced in Türkiye, with the localization fee of panels reaching as much as 80%,” he added.
Kutay Kaleli, head of the Worldwide Photo voltaic Vitality Society (ISES) Türkiye Part (GÜNDER) for his half, famous that 150,000 persons are instantly employed within the photo voltaic power sector, stating that panel factories with a manufacturing capability of roughly 30,000 megawatts have been established in Türkiye.
“With all of the investments made in photo voltaic power, we now have develop into the third largest panel-producing nation on the earth. We opened the fifth EVA manufacturing unit, which is essential in photo voltaic expertise,” Kaleli mentioned.
Çiğdem Dilek, chairperson of the EIF Congress Govt Board, said that current technological developments have taken a extra distinguished place in Türkiye’s power agenda.
She emphasised that self-consumption and distributed power are on the forefront of buyers’ agendas and mentioned: “In Türkiye, laws work on subjects akin to hydrogen and charging stations is on the agenda and progressing quickly. We’ll proceed to see new technological developments.”
“If an power image of Türkiye had been to be taken, sector representatives would want to come back to EIF.
