The 2010-2014 Strategic Plan is a first step in reaching Turkish national renewable energy target of 30% of the total electricity generated from renewable source by 2030.

The 2010-2014 Strategic Plan aims to:

  • increase Turkish energy security by diversifying its energy supply,
  • make greater use of domestic resources,
  • protect the environment by relying on clean,
  • renewable and low carbon technologies and foster energy market efficiency by fostering private sector's investment and integration.

The plan seeks to increase the number of developed renewable energy Licensed Projects, boost the development of the small hydro sector and increase electricity grid connection for wind power plants. The plan also seeks to attract private investments in research and development and in geothermal exploitation for electricity production. The plan will also provide financial support to innovation and technology research in the field of renewable energies.

Eventually, the plan focuses on the promotion, through training and awareness raising campaigns, of renewable energy and energy efficiency actions at various scales. The long term Turkish energy strategy will mainly be met by the development of:

  • wind: 10.000 MW by 2015
  • hydroelectricity: 5.000 MW by 2013.

The strategy also targets energy efficiency improvements and seeks to save 10% of national energy bill by 2015 and 20% by 2023.
