2022 has been a year with important consequences both in the world and in Turkey due to geopolitical and local developments. While the effects of the volatilities in energy demand and prices experienced due to the Covid-19 epidemic in 2020 continue, the war that Russia waged against Ukraine at the beginning of 2022 has raised questions about how to ensure energy supply security for all countries. The supply problems experienced by European countries, especially in the face of Russia's natural gas outages, and the resulting increase in demand for liquefied natural gas (LNG) have resulted in unexpected increases in both global natural gas prices and coal prices. This rise in global commodity prices caused significant increases in electricity, natural gas and coal prices in Turkey and affected the entire supply chain.

As of the end of 2022, 46% of Turkey's total electricity capacity and approximately 58% of gross electricity production were provided by fossil fuels. As a country that imports almost all of the fossil fuel oil and natural gas, Turkey's dependence on these resources causes it to be directly affected by price increases in global markets. Therefore, Turkey's need for low-carbon energy transformation is of critical importance in order to reduce its dependence on foreign energy and prevent its fragility in the current account deficit.

Turkey's renewable energy potential has the feature of being a lever in low-carbon energy transformation. Models applied especially to solar and wind energy sources in the last 20 years have enabled Turkey to progress faster than expected in low-carbon energy transformation, with the influence of the steps taken by policy makers to combat climate change. Carrying this point to better levels has become a goal compatible with the 2053 net zero emission target.

In the context of the integration of renewable energy sources into the electricity system, the legislative regulations made in the last two years with a focus on electricity storage and the potential offered by nuclear energy as an uninterrupted source of electricity supply will cause Turkey to take faster steps in low-carbon energy transformation.

In 2023, our country's electricity production decreased by 0.16% compared to 2022 and reached 324.793 billion kWh. The installed power of our country reached 106,667.54 MW with the new power plants commissioned in 2023.
