Karapınar Solar Power Plant (GES), which has an investment value of $1 billion (TL 18.2 billion) and will reach full capacity with its 1350 MW installed power by the end of 2022, is promoting an important example in this field. Karapınar GES, which was established in Konya, is Türkiye's largest solar power plant and has the title of Europe's largest solar power plant with its 900 MW panel installed power before it reaches its full capacity. When the aforementioned project is completed, it is expected to provide clean electrical energy to 2 million households and greatly contribute to the green economic transformation.
Undoubtedly, the solar energy potential of Türkiye has great importance within the scope of the works toward the goal of achieving net zero emissions by 2053. When the recommendations from the Climate Council attended by many stakeholders and participants are examined, the intention in this direction is clearly seen. In this context, decisions are taken to prepare the long-term Energy Plan within the framework of the 2053 Net Zero Emission Target, to ensure the maximum use of renewable energy resources, diversify the usage areas and increase the system flexibility for the integration of more renewable energy capacity into the energy system, it is possible to say that serious steps will be taken in the context of energy.
