Düzova Wind Power, Turkey

Delivering essential renewable energy capacity in a country with rapidly growing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions

Project Type: Sustainable infrastructure, Renewable energy

Standards: Gold Standard

  • 9 Turbines
  • 5 Weigh Bridge
  • 11 Turbines
  • 1 Turbines
  • 7 Turbines

Located on the Aegean coast in Izmir Province, Turkey, this Gold Standard project generates electricity using wind power and feeds it into the public grid. Following an extensive local stakeholder consultation programme with more than 200 participants, 12 wind turbines were constructed initially, generating a total installed capacity of 30 MW and supplying approximately 110,000 MWh per year. Since 2002 Turkey has seen an annual growth rate in electricity demand of 5.5% and energy use is expected to increase by 50% over the next decade. The project is aiding Turkey in an essential switch to renewable energy in order to meet this rapidly increasing energy demand, which is caused by significant population growth, economic development and increasing urbanisation.

If we invest in the technology, wind could provide 19% of the global demand for electricity by 2030.

Sustainable Development Goals

In addition to delivering emissions reductions to take climate action (SDG 13), the project delivers another benefit:

  • Affordable and Clean Energy: Turkey has a high important dependency on natural gas. This project helps to avoid the amount of natural gas that needs to be imported by supplying renewable energy to the grid. There are now approximately 110,000 MWh of electricity generated every year which equates to around 10 million m3 imported natural gas avoided. The project aids in reducing Turkey’s dependency on imports with 99.4% of natural gas being consumed originating from outside the country.

Turkey's renewable energy generation has tripled in the past decade, but coal and oil still provide over half the country's total energy supply
