The installed solar energy capacity of 8.3 gigawatts (GW) in Turkey is calculated to exceed 30 gigawatts by 2030 with roof and field type projects, according to reports.

Turkey’s multiple support schemes throughout the years saw the installed solar power capacity rise to 249 MW in 2015, before rocketing to 833 MW a year later.

Still, the biggest leap was seen in 2017, when the figure reached 3,421 MW, a 311% year-over-year increase, according to the data.

Some 1,149 MW of installed capacity was added in 2021 alone. In Turkey, where the average daily sunshine duration is 7 1/2 hours, the rooftop solar power plant potential is estimated to be at the level of 20 GW.

The period from 2022 onward carries even greater importance, pointing particularly to the Paris climate agreement, which Turkey ratified in October last year.
