Market development of renewable energy in Turkey

Demirdizen, Hasan Gence
Renewable energy is a current issue in the world as well as in Turkey. Turkey has developing policies in the renewable energy field. Although it is a beneficial mean of obtaining energy, there are barriers on renewable energy production. In order to develop renewable energies, those barriers have to be analyzed and suitable implementations should be developed to overcome them. In this thesis policy and implementation on the renewables are evaluated in general and specially for Turkey. The electricity market is one of the crucial factors of development of the renewable energy. The day-ahead market and renewable energy support mechanism in Turkey are investigated. Finally benefit calculations is carried out in order to compare benefits of renewable energy in market and support mechanisms by using real time price and production values of two renewable energy plants; a hydropower and a wind power plants. Further, outcomes of newly developed prediction project for wind power plants are evaluated in terms of market benefit.

Tüzgel, Yılmaz Bahadır; Severcan, Yücel Can; Kentel Erdoğan, Elçin; Department of Geodetic and Geographical Information Technologies (2018)
Turkey is one of the countries which has wind energy policies and prospective aims. Hence, wind energy developments have been maintained for the last decade more than ever across the country. Muğla, as sixth province with highest wind energy potential, gets its share by hosting ongoing projects. It is also known for its tourism sector and the sector gets its strength from the unique environmental values of the province. This study investigates opinions and choices of two main stakeholders of tourism sector ...
Renewable energy planning in Turkey with a focus on hydropower
Gök, Emre; Kentel Erdoğan, Elçin; Department of Civil Engineering (2013)
As a country highly dependent on foreign fossil fuel sources, Turkey experiences many problems due to its increasing energy consumption in parallel with increasing population and rapid economic growth. Foreign fossil fuel dependency adversely affects sustainable development of the country by hindering its economic development. Because of this, renewable energy sources of the country should be evaluated and developed as soon as possible. Prioritization of the development of renewable energy sources to increa...
Alternative feasibility studies for Altıparmak Dam and HEPP
Ak, Mümtaz; Kentel Erdoğan, Elçin; Yanmaz, Ali Melih; Department of Civil Engineering (2011)
Hydropower is the most important domestic energy source of Turkey. Thus, wise planning and development of the unused hydropower potential of the country is vital. There are many hydroelectric power plants under planning stage in our country. Altıparmak HEPP is one of them. General Directorate of Electrical Power Resources Survey and Development Administration (EİE) and ANC Enerji conducted two separate feasibility studies for Altıparmak HEPP in 2001 and 2009, respectively. Traditionally, the energy income c...
Rethinking wind energy in its social context: conflicting perspectives and planning problems – the Karaburun experience
Özçam, Zeynep; Pınarcıoğlu, Mehmet Melih; Department of City and Regional Planning (2016)
As a result of global concerns about energy related environmental problems, the use of renewable energy resources has gained great importance. The renewables are widely recognized as an effective tool for limiting energy related emissions and a fundamental component of sustainable development. Among these, especially wind energy has considerable involvement. Due to this, major national policies intend to support wind energy and wind energy installations have also started to grow with an expanding rate. Like...
Preliminary Study on Site Selection For Floating Hybrid Wind And Solar Energy Systems In Turkey
Yerlikaya, Nevzat Can; Çakan, Çağatay; Başara, Ilgın; Caceoğlu, Eray; Huvaj Sarıhan, Nejan (2021-09-08)
It is well-known that even though fossil fuels are the main energy resource in Turkey, use of sustainable energy resources such as wind and solar energy has been increasing in the past years and expected to continue on this trend in the next years to come. The suitable land for land-based wind turbines and photovoltaic (PV) systems could also be convenient for various other purposes, such as agriculture. This study aims to investigate the suitable sites for a combined floating wind and solar systems in the ...
