Turkey has tripled electricity generation in 18 years

Electricity generation is a factor without which it is not possible for Turkey to make progress in its development. For the past 18 years, electricity generation in our country has been increased three times and reached 96 thousand megwatts. Our goal is to have leading positions not only in production but also in renewable energy technologies, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said today.
He participated through teleconferencing in the opening of new electricity and natural resource extraction projects in Manisa, Aegean Turkey, BTA said.

The new projects are planned to provide employment to around 1500 people and meet three-quarters of the district's electricity needs. Facilities should be an example in clean coal technologies.
