Stadium in Senegal hosts 2.3 MW solar plant

Turkish developer Citus Power built the solar array with Sungrow inverters and Trina modules. It is able to operate in both on- and off-grid mode.


Turkey’s 1 GW PV tender attracted, so far, a lowest bid of $0.0257/kWh

The Turkish Ministry of Energy has completed, thus far, only the tender’s first 300 MW tranche, and the three winning bids ranged from $0.0257/kWh to $0.0293/kWh


Green steel – powered by a rooftop

SolarApex has built what it calls the world’s largest rooftop PV array. A 140 MW project on a steelmill will help Turkish steelmaker Tosyali to shift its production to carbon-free ‘green steel.’ Chief Marketing Officer Besime Özderici says the project could be an example for other energy-intensive industries.

Turkey added 1.14 GW of PV capacity in 2021

According to official statistics from grid operator TEIAS, the country’s cumulative PV capacity reached 7.81 GW at the end of December.


EBRD package to pay for 27 MW of solar in Turkish city

The London-based development institution will offer up a loan and grant to fund the construction of five solar plants at municipal sites across Gaziantep, as part of the lender’s Green City program.

Swiss Solar to build 1.5 GW PV module fab in Turkey

Swiss Solar AG has announced that its new solar PV module production facility is located in Turkey. When complete, it says there will be three production lines with an annual capacity of 1.5 GW. By 2027, it aims to have “at least” 5 GW of manufacturing capacity available.


Photovoltaic rotary energy system for domestic applications, high-rise buildings

Developed by scientists in Turkey, a system prototype has operated at lower PV module temperatures and removed most of the dust accumulation. The researchers are now planning to improve the device by applying MPPT converter topologies.


Turkey’s largest PV project secures $292 million guarantee from UK export credit agency

Kalyon Enerji aims to finish working on a 1.35 GW solar project in Turkey by the end of this year. The installation, which already features 227 MW of operational capacity, uses central inverters from General Electric.

System design for greenhouses relying on PV and ground source heat pump

Proposed by Turkish scientists, the system design consists of combining rooftop PV with a ground source heat pump in a greenhouse used for tomato, cucumber and lettuce cultivation. The solar array operates under net metering and grid electricity is used when PV generation is unable to cover demand. According to their findings, the system payback time ranges from 2.6 to 7 years.


Turkey deployed 992 MW of solar in first ten months of 2021

The country’s cumulative capacity reached 7.6 GW at the end of October.
