Turkey has announced a new solar tender to be launched by the end of the year. Initial information gives some clues as to what this tender might include.
The country’s energy minister Berat Albayrak recently stated Turkey plans to launch new tenders for coal and solar power capacity by the end of the year. He spoke at a recently opened call center, the first of nine planned facilities intended to collect complaints from electricity consumers.
The tenders are not just for solar. They include coal electricity production, as well. “By launching the first local coal and solar tenders before the end of the year, we will take steps to turn Turkey into a research and development center,” Albayrak said.
