    I will provide not a Turkish source, but the source is "The German Office for Foreign Trade".

    EPDK (Electricity Market Regulatory Authority of Turkey) held on 1.November.2007 a licencing round for wind-power applications. To block bidders who just buy a licence for later trade, all bidders had to pay 10.000 YTL (=5.814€) per 1 MW licence.
    In total there were applications for 750 projects totalling an installation capacity of 78.000 MW, which is equal to 132 Billion $ of investment costs.][kat]-Eua[/kat][sicht]suche[/sicht][/suche]Übersetzen

    Here are details of all 750 projects:

    Turkey currently has a wind-power installation of 146 MW, and 2.146 MW already under construction. Those 2.146 MW under construction were licenced 2 years before.
    Since 2 years no further applications round was held, as in meantime the relevant Turkish Institutions have prepared a "Wind-Atlas" of Turkey.
    Turkey is with economically utlizable 80.000 MW one of the Mekkas for wind-energy in the world. About 23% of whole territory is wind-strength of 45 KM/h. Another 19% of territory is 38 KM/h.

    After works on "wind-Atlas" were completed, a new licencing round was opened and all companies in Turkey which have name and fame applied for licences. Based on datas of "Wind-Atlas".
    Also international companies like BP, Iberdrole, EON, SOCAR (Azerbaijan), Suzlon (India) etc. bidded.

    The cool thing is, that we now have Turkish companies who indigeniously developed Wind-turbines and can supply this emerging market (investment volume of 132 billion $). For example the company "Soyut Enerji".
    Construction of Wind-Parks is a business which does not take too much time.
    In near future, Turkey will be absolute leader of utilization of Wind-Energy on earth with a big gap to others.
    Current Turkish electricity production comes already to a share of 32% from water-power.
    Here are also new investments and developments on its way, which i will describe iin next post.
