“Wind Will Play Significant Role In Turkey”

Wind will play a significant role in Turkey’s continuously growing economy in the upcoming years, according to an International Energy Agency, IEA, official Monday.

“Turkey is growing fast which is obviously good for the economy, and the growing population will increase energy demand,” said the Head of the Renewable Energy Division of the IEA, Paolo Frankl, in an interview on Monday.

Turkey has become one of Europe’s largest wind energy markets with the cumulative installed wind capacity for the country amounting to 3.8 gigawatts, according to data of the Global Wind Energy Council, GWEC.

Frankl noted that wind will have a major role in the country due to its growing share in the last decade.
