Turkey plans to reach the national renewable energy target of 30% by 2030.

IZMIR, Turkey - 5 June 2018 – For the first time ever, the Turkish Ministry of Energy has asked DNV GL, the world’s largest resource of independent energy experts and certification body, to do a feasibility study for combined solar and energy storage solutions. The aim of the study is to provide the Ministry’s Renewable Energy General Directorate with best practices for a possible integration of energy storage in the upcoming solar auctions. 

The project is part of Turkey’s strategic plan to reach the national renewable energy target of 30% of the total electricity generated from renewable source by 2030.

As part of this strategic ambition, the Turkish Ministry for Energy announced in late February 2018 to issue another two Gigawatts (GW) of renewables projects in summer 2018, one of which will consist of solar. With this two new GW tender, the government aims to reach its goal of 5 GW installed solar capacity until 2023.

After completing its first auction rounds for both wind and solar, the Turkish government now aims to verify whether the integration of storage solutions in the next solar auctions have the relevant potential to further lower the cost of energy. Within the next three months, DNV GL will review and analyze storage technology worldwide to identify specific prequalification and technical specification requirements that can lead to lower Levelized Cost of Energy from solar power in Turkey.

“Turkey is taking an exemplary step by considering storage solutions in their auction system. With their experience from the past wind and solar auctions, the time is right to identify a holistic renewable energy approach,” said Andreas Schröter, Executive Vice President Central Europe and Mediterranean at DNV GL. “Having worked on solar + storage projects in other parts of the world, we are looking forward to support the Turkish government with our local team in Turkey to help them meet their aspirational targets.”
