Wind power became the largest source of electricity generation for the first time in the country's history with a 22.6% share on Nov. 28, according to the Turkish Electricity Transmission Corporation (TEIAŞ) on Monday.

Wind power plants generated 178,964 megawatt-hours (MWh) out of a total of 791,794 MWh of daily electricity output.

Turkey's installed wind power capacity reached 10,585 megawatts (MW), making it the second-largest renewable capacity after hydropower.

Most recently on Nov. 11, electricity production from wind power hit a daily record, generating 20.1% of total power.

Turkey has seen considerable diversification of its energy mix in the past decade, in particular through the growth of renewable electricity generation.

Of the 77 wind equipment producers in Turkey, 70% generate their revenues from equipment exports.

Turkey ranked among the top five European countries that invested the most in wind energy with its over 1 billion euros ($1.17 billion) of land wind energy investments in 2020, according to WindEurope, the association that advocates for wind energy in Europe and around the globe. »
