Long-term sustainability target

Net zero by 2053

As of 2023, Turkey has 11 GW of installed wind power capacity. This represents just over a third of the country’s goal to have 30 GW of installed capacity by 2035. In Turkey, wind represents an attractive alternative to fossil fuels not just because of its environmental benefits: it is expected that new wind power will be cheaper than all existing coal plants by 2027.
