  • Solar and wind currently hold an 11% share in Turkey’s total energy generation but this share is forecast to increase to 36% by 2040.
  • In June 2018, five industrial giants: the Anadolu Group, BMC, Kok Group, Turkcell, and Zorlu Holding as well as an umbrella organization, the Union of Chambers and Commodity Exchanges of Turkey, joined forces to form Turkey’s Automobile Joint Venture Group (TOGG) to produce Turkey’s first domestically manufactured electric vehicle.
  • Guray also maintained that the share of local sources for power generation would increase after Turkey’s first nuclear plant becomes operational and the country begins using its natural gas production from the Black Sea region.
