Türkiye intends to incorporate renewable resources, such as solar, wind, hydraulic, and geothermal, into its energy mix within a certain program,” Bayraktar said in a statement.

The nation targets adding 5,000 megawatts of fresh renewable energy capacity annually, with 3,500 megawatts from solar energy and 1,500 megawatts from wind power, as stated by Bayraktar.

Every kilowatt-hour of renewable electricity means a reduction in the amount of natural gas, coal, and oil the country imports, the minister noted.

According to IRENA, China, the United States, Brazil, India, Germany, Japan, Canada, Spain, France, and Italy occupy the top 10 places in world ranking of installed renewable energy capacity.
