Turkey to shape wind energy market in Europe
“Turkey could be among the top three producers of wind energy”, according to Christian Kjaer, CEO of the European Wind Energy Association (EWEA). Commenting on the country’s potential regarding energy production from wind, Kjaer said Turkey has recently raised in rank among wind energy producers in Europe, securing the 13th place and leaving Poland behind.
Kjaer highlighted the availability of land plots for wind farms and drew attention to Turkey’s growing energy need, which in part, is expected to be met by wind energy. “Turkey has a predictable and attractive market for wind energy investors”, said Kjaer, adding that the country has potential to become one of the biggest players in the wind energy sector.
