Turkey will add 4 GW to electricity production capacity in 2015, energy minister Taner Yıldız said, adding 95 percent will be provided through local and renewable resources, Hurriyet daily reported.

The statement came after a massive power outage affected more than 76 million people in 80 out of 81 Turkish provinces for up to nine hours on March 31.

Turkey’s installed capacity was 69.52 GW last year and the aim is to increase the share of local and renewable resources to 30 percent by 2023, Yıldız said.
