  • Institutions & Energy Policy

    MENR, Ministry of Energy and Natural Resources (ETKB in Turkish) controls the energy sector.

    EMRA (Energy Market Regulatory Authority; EPDK in Turkish) is the regulator of the energy market. Its role is to deliver new licences for the production of electricity; approve new distribution contracts; fix the electricity and gas sale tariffs; implement financial and administrative ...

  • Energy Companies


    TEK, the Turkish Electricity Authority, acted as the national state-owned power company until 1993. It was then gradually split into four companies: EUAS (Production), TEIAS (Transmission), TEDAS (Distribution) and TETAS (Marketing). TEDAS was further divided into 21 regional operators.

  • Energy Supply


    Turkey has limited oil and gas reserves (44 Mt and 6.3 bcm at the end of 2018). However, the country holds an estimated 679 bcm of recoverable unconventional gas. Its coal and lignite resources (over 11 Gt) are of poor quality and their extraction cost is high (for coal). The potential of renewables is high. The potential for hydroelectric power is estimated at 160 TWh/year, for solar at ...

  • Energy Prices


    Electricity prices have been decreasing by almost 8%/year on average since 2012: they were €7.1c/kWh for industry and €8.8c/kWh for households in 2018 (from €11.5c/kWh and €14.3c/kWh, respectively, in 2012). In July 2019, electricity prices for household and small businesses have been increased by 15%, in order to reflect rising costs in electricity generation.

  • Energy Consumption

    Total consumption per capita was around 1.8 toe in 2018 (of which 3 100 kWh of electricity) compared to about 3.2 toe for the EU.

    Total energy consumption grew at a rapid average rate of around 4%/year between 2000 and 2018, reaching 148 Mtoe. This increase has been particularly sharp over 2014-2017, with an average rate over 6%/year.

    Coal and lignite is the main energy consumed ...

  • Issues & Prospects

    The coming years will be dominated by two main issues: on the one hand, the need to deal with the rapidly growing energy consumption by increasing the production capacities and by restructuring the energy sector; and, on the other hand, the consolidation of Turkey's central role as a transit centre for natural gas and oil from the Caspian Sea to Europe.
