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. http://www.bfai.de/DE/Content/__Sha...b][kat]-Eua[/kat][sicht]suche[/sicht][/suche] http://de.babelfish.yahoo.com/trans...t%5D%5B/suche%5D&lp=de_en&btnTrUrl=Übersetzen Here are details of all 750 projects: http://www.epdk.org.tr/duyuru/elektrik/acil/1kasim2007ResBasvurulari.pdf 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. http://repa.eie.gov.tr/en/index.aspx?lan=EN 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.
