Renewable Energy Description:

In a move to meet its target of reaching 30% of its power from renewable sources by 2023, Turkey implemented a long-awaited renewable energy law.

The law first adjusts and increases the Turkish Feed-in tariffs, fixed as follows:

Renewable source

Power plant capacity

Period of time

Feed-in tariff rate in USD/kWh

Installation capacity cap

Wind

All sizes

10 years

0.073

 

N/A

Hydropower

Geothermal

0.105

Biomass

0.133

 

Biogas

Solar PV

600 MW by 2013

Such tariffs replace previous rates ranging from EUR 0.05 to EUR 0.055/kWh that used to apply to all renewable technologies.

Tariffs apply for a ten-year period to power generators completed in 2005 to 2015. Renewable producers will also benefit from a 85% discount on transmission costs for 10 years.

 

The 2010 RE Law also includes bonus payments for hardware componentsmade in Turkey to support and boost the national manufacturing sector. Companies the facilities of which rely on locally produced equipment/components receive a bonus to their feed-in tariff, fixed as follows:

Renewable hardware components

Bonus feed-in tariff payment in USD/kWh
