The article focuses on trends in the energy industry in Turkey. Attention on the Turkish energy sector has long focused on the trials and tribulations of the gas industry. In an effort to ensure that the country had sufficient generating capacity, the government concluded too many gas import deals, which resulted in a series of difficult contractual negotiations. With so much gas on offer, it was therefore somewhat surprising that Ankara has now decided on an ambitious plan to increase the proportion of electricity to be generated from renewable energy sources. Many countries that have sought to boost renewable energy production in recent years have set steadily increasing production targets, but Turkey has opted for a different approach.
