    On 17th December of this year, Turkish windmills provided nearly 10% of Turkey's electricity use, creating enough energy to cover 9 million residences needs. That's a new record!

    "Addressing concerns over possible gas shortages, Erdogan said Turkey could turn to its renewable energy resources."

    Finally, a huge and sepical "Thank you!" goes out to Russia from all Turkish environmentalists:
    Tensions with Russia make Turkey’s clean energy transition timelier than ever

    The share of wind power in electricity consumption is increasing every year:

    We have so much potential when it come to renewable energy. There government needs to push harder for domestic wind turbines and photovoltaic technology.

    Diversifying our the suppliers of gas or oil is not the way to independence.

    Our potential is very high in renewable energy
    We can use water
    Wind energy
    Sun -
    Thermal energy

    Wind energy we should not generate only energy we should compress air the air in ground for example old salt mines.. Then we can use the compressed air to generate electricity why is there no one with ideas and potential

    Energy from water we have already good projects... Everything is on its way..

    Solar energy, here in germany they use it you can see it on the roof of many houses.... Some time ago in winter I visited my hometown in turkey we had - 20 C - it was very cold but I recognized that the sun was much higher than in germany and the color of light was much more yellow (in germany) we had more sun but the air was just cold.. So even in anatolia there is more efficient sun than in germany.. If the germans use solar energy then we should have much more

    Also we need many different types of sun energy eg concentrated solar energy like the big ones in Spain and USA.. Also solar thermal energy should be used much more

    In some areas we could use thermal energy too

    There are some simple things that we could use to heat up in winter and cool down in summer

    you gotta be realistic. wind will not replace Russia nat gas or Qatar nat gas right now or even 20 years from now

    In this particular case, you're wrong. Turkey generates 50 percent of its electricity from Russian gas. More renewable energy -> less gas imports in the future.

    Nope.

    Turkey should keep investing in nuclear power plants (1st priority) and renewable energies (2nd priority) to become energy independent. It would save Turkey billions of dollars in the long run as it will no longer have to import oil and gas from abroad.

    Turkey should always be producing more energy than it requires---so there's ample energy available for growth and industrialization.

    Actually, the Solar sector is now rising due to new legislation.

    Solar power in Turkey - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    2014: only 58 MW
    2015: at least 236 MW

    -> Turkish Solar Power: Better Late Than Never - Energy and Natural Resources - Turkey

    Another project: solar-charged buses.

    Turkey's changing power markets - Bloomberg New Energy Finance

    Interesting Paper from Bloomberg, analysing the forecasts and plans of the Government. They also compare prices for different means including fuel costs and how they influence the current account deficit.

    Bloomberg believes that the Government is overestimating the energy demand as countries use less energy the richer they get because they tend to grow in the service sector as opposed to the producing sector which is using a lot more energy.

    One thing we seem to completely ignore is efficiency. We are still losing 15 percent of our energy due to inefficieny in the grid.
    Also energy efficient building seems to be ignored completely. Like energy inefficient light bulbs should be taken off the market like in the European Union.

    Seems like solar energy is not subsidized on purpose because of the huge coal reserves we have and the Government plans to utilize with around 80 planed power plants. Thus big investments for solar energy will be seen in a later stage, 2030+

    you gotta take into effect growth. Russia will lower prices to keep it's market share in Turkey.


    but assuming Turkey goes all in on solar and wind I guess it's possible to break away from natural gas.

    Solar and wind are nowehere enough in the foreseeable future to become energy independent, nuclear is the most realistic way but we should develop all alternatives ofcourse.

    Yeah not but if you compress air and use this than you can store energy..

    Also we need to produce hydrogen from water we could use the wind and solar energy for this.. This would help us to make us more independent

    We need this beauty:

    but better we build not only one of this better to build a cluster of this maybe 4 or eight of this beauties in one place

    http://blog.world-mysteries.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/08/spain-solar-panel.jpg


    And if we would build them everywhere where we have the most sunny days then we would produce so much green energy..

    Imagine 30 of this all over turkey I belive we could get the technology for this
