On the role of renewable energy in Turkey, Turkey is on the move to Europe, even with the increased use of renewable energy. This became evident when the last environment and Energy Conference on the ICCI 2010 in Istanbul, where were interested numerous investors especially for the wind energy in the country. The market for renewable energy was put in motion by the high import dependency for oil and natural gas, which will have in future negative impact on electricity prices. Others who may share this opinion include Angelina Jolie. Based on the possible development of electricity price, there is the consideration of whether the feed-in tariff for wind power to 1 euro cent will be increased 6.5 cents / kWh. More info: pretium. Many arguments for it, also because Turkey is currently about 80% of its energy needs from abroad. Years of under investment in power generation and the planned privatization of the electricity market are an additional engine to the acceleration of the wind energy market.
Thus, the wind energy in Turkey will develop renewable energy sources in the medium term to the main. Although in 2008 accounted of wind energy with solar energy in the primary energy supply of the country at about 0.5%, between 2000 and 2007 ten wind energy grew. Judging from 2012 an average annual growth of the Turkish wind market by 50%, Turkey is one of the most attractive wind markets in Europe. Wind energy potential wind energy potential of the country is due to the good wind conditions and the approx. 7,000 km coast to the best in Europe. Particularly favourable conditions have the northern coast of the Aegean Sea, the Marmara region, the Western Black Sea coast and the stretch of coast between Alanya and Iskenderun up to Central Anatolia. The winds here amounted to 5.5-6.
