According to the written statement made by the Ministry of Energy and Natural Resources, China ranks first in the ranking of installed power statistics published by the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA), followed by the USA and Brazil.

In the ranking of renewable installed capacity, Brazil is followed by India, Germany, Japan, Canada, Canada, Spain, France and Italy. Türkiye, which was 12th in the previous ranking, ranks 11th with 58 thousand 462 megawatts of installed capacity.

Highlighting that Türkiye has risen to 11th place in the ranking of installed power, Bayraktar said, “We have entered the top 11 in the world in renewable energy, we are 5th in Europe. Türkiye is acting with the aim of bringing all its renewable resources such as solar resources, winds, hydraulic resources, geothermal resources to its economy within a certain programme.”

Pointing out that they aim to commission 5 thousand megawatts of installed power every year in the field of renewable energy, Bayraktar explained, “We want to reach a total of 60 thousand megawatts of new installed power for 12 years until 2035, with 3 thousand 500 megawatts in solar and 1500 megawatts in wind. As of April 2024, we have exceeded 1400 megawatts. At the end of the year, we will definitely reach the target of 5 thousand megawatts.”

Indicating that 25 thousand megawatts of the total 110 thousand megawatts of installed power is solar and wind energy, Bayraktar continued as follows:

“Our 25 thousand megawatts of installed power will increase to 30 thousand megawatts at the end of the year and 35 thousand megawatts in 2025. Thus, the target we set until 2035 is to boost this 25 thousand megawatts to approximately 90 thousand megawatts. With the electricity we produce with renewable resources, we both prevent imports and step by step approach our 2053 Net Zero Carbon target. Every kilowatt-hour of electricity we produce in the renewable context means a reduction in the amount of natural gas, coal and oil we import.”
