EasyChair Preprint no. 2668

5 pagesDate: February 15, 2020


Turkey's demand for energy and industrial development, in parallel to urbanization and growing population, are constantly increasing along with electricity demand. In order to meet this demand, there are limited hydrocarbon resources, nonetheless, Turkey has a huge potential for renewable resources that can meet this demand instead of imported coal and natural gas in electricity generation. The use of renewable energy sources, including wind and solar power, has increased rapidly in recent years in Turkey and record growth in renewable power generation has been recorded in a short time where solar power installed capacity reached 5062 MW and wind power reached to 7005 MW by the end of 2018. This trend has the potential to continue and the country's cleaner renewable energy sources can be the main source of electricity generation. This study examines the penetration of renewable energy sources to the grid by analyzing the current grid situation. The results show that the estimated installed capacity for electricity generation capacity of Turkey is about 111.710 MW and 127.754 MW, respectively for the years 2024 and 2029.
