In 2002, EUROSOLAR was established as a Turkish unit in order to bring together efforts, ideas, actions to form a long-term and holistic energy strategy to transform the renewable energy resources in Turkey in line with the principles and goals of EUROSOLAR.
Turkey renewable energy targets:
- Overall target: 30% of the total electricity generated from renewable sources by 2030 and 20% of national energy bill saved by 2023.

The Renewable Energy Association of Turkey (EUROSOLAR Turkey) organizes the annual International 100% Renewable Energy Conference (IRENEC). The results of the conference in May 2016 have now been summarized in a conference resolution:
Economy is the determinant parameter for the transition to renewable energy (RE). In 2015 renewable energy investments accounted for more than 50% of the total new installed capacity worldwide. More than USD 250 billion was invested in RE. Even with the fossil fuels subsidies in total USD 500 billion, RE has become mainstream. The conventional power utilities had to transform their business strategy to RE, they’ve realized that they would not be able to survive otherwise. China has become the world leader in RE. Other leading countries like Denmark and Germany are getting reorganised to make the best use of efficient deployment in their countries.
