Geothermal power generation continues to increase in Turkey, as the country works toward a goal of at least 2 GW of installed capacity by the end of 2019, a rise of almost 50% since the end of 2018.

Geothermal energy today accounts for about 2.4% of the country’s total power output, and growth of renewable resources is considered key to reducing Turkey’s dependence on imported power.

Recent announcements of several projects, including new units at the country’s largest facilities, highlight growing interest in the geothermal sector.

There will be an update on geothermal energy in Turkey as part of the International Luncheon at the GRC Annual Meeting & Expo. On September 16, between 12 noon and 1:30 pm Tevfik Kaya, Business Development Manager / Senior Reservoir Engineer at GeothermEx/Schlumberger, will present.
