National Energy Plan of Türkiye has been announced!
- Jan 26, 2023 6:56 am GMT
National Energy Plan of Türkiye has been announced and published last week by the Ministy of Energy and Natural Resources. The plan which is prepared based on 2053 Net Zero Emission target covers the period of 2020-2035. Some important results of the scenario in the plan are as follows:
- Primary energy consumption increases from 147.2 Mtoe to 205.3 Mtoe during the period.
- The share of renewable energy in the primary energy consumption rises from 16.7% to 23.7%, while the share of fossil fuel in primary energy consumption decreases from 83.3% to 70.4%.
- The share of nuclear energy in primary energy consumption is expected to go up to 5.9%.
- Electricity consumption, which has increased around 4.4% per year during 2000-2020, is assumed to increase around 3.5% per year during 2020-2035 to reach 510.5 TWh.
- Total installed power capacity of Türkiye rises from 95.9 GW to 189.7 GW in which the share of renewable energy sources is expected to be 64.7% in 2035.
- Hydropower plants, wind and solar energy installed capacities are estimated to be 35.1 GW, 29.6 GW and 52.9 GW respectively while installed power capacity of nuclear increases to 7.2 GW in 2035.
- Installed power capacities of coal and gas also increase to 24.3 GW and 35.5 GW respectively.
- The share of intermittent renewable energy sources in total electricity production scales up from 11.7% in 2020 to 34.3% in 2035 while the share of electricity production from thermic power plants declines from 57.6% to 34.2%. Furthermore, the share of renewable energy sources in total electricity production increases to 54.8% in 2035.
- As the share of intermittent renewable energy sources increases, the need for flexibility in the energy system increases. Therefore, battery and electrolyser capacities are assumed to reach 7.5 GW and 5 GW respectively while demand side management increases to 1.7 GW in 2035.
