Project type: Renewable energy
Standards: Gold Standard
Spanning across Manisia and Balikesir Provinces in the western Anatolia region of Turkey, this wind power project consists of 119 turbines with a total capacity of 140 MW, supplying zero emissions renewable electricity to the national grid. Despite its abundant renewable energy potential, Turkey depends heavily on imported fossil fuels, and GHG emissions are growing rapidly in part due to significant population growth and urbanisation. This project is supporting an essential switch to renewable energy to meet the country’s rapidly increasing energy demand, generating approximately 465,000 MWh of clean electricity each year.
In addition to delivering emissions reductions to help take urgent action to combat climate change (SDG 13), the project delivers a number of other sustainable development benefits including:
