Turkey’s economy ministry has decided to support solar energy investment incentives, following promises made by the governing Justice and Development Party (AKP), TRT World portal reported. The government gave 28 incentive certificates for solar energy, out of 35 overall energy production projects this year, according to its regular data release in February.

The country has an advantageous location from which to produce solar energy compared with other countries in Europe, with Turkey’s existing conditions for solar power generation being strong and solar radiation values high. The incentives policy gives primacy to domestic and renewable energy sources, and the distribution of certificates in its February data release signifies favouring solar energy over any other sector, the report said.

Turkey’s economic ministry will support 28 solar energy power plants, 3 wind farms plants, 1 geothermal, 1 coal power facility, 1 hydroelectric power and 1 biomass plant with investment incentives. 11 solar plants in Nevşehir, 8 in Konya, and 4 in Isparta will be built under the programme, plus one for Kayseri, Antalya, Muğla, Burdur and Eskişehir, each.
