Throughout the historical development of civilizations across the world, mankind has sought solutions with centuries of efforts to make equipment that can use energy and to use various forms of energy in nature. Common non-renewable energy sources include petroleum and its derivatives, coal and its derivatives and uranium (nuclear) energy sources. Alternatives to such sources are renewable energy sources including solar energy, wind energy, biomass energy, hydroelectric energy, geothermal energy, wave energy and hydrogen energy.
In 2021, the following sources were used to generate electricity in Turkey: coal (31.4%), natural gas (32.7%), hydraulic energy (16.8%), wind (9.4%), sun (4%), geothermal energy (3.2%) and other sources (2.4%).
Turkey’s annual average radiation value is 1504 kWh / m2, and the average sunshine duration is 2700 hours. These values are sufficient to supply your electricity from the sun.
Turkey officially became a party to the Paris Climate Agreement with the approval of the Grand National Assembly of Turkey on October 6, 2021. Unlicensed Electricity Generation Regulation, one of the legislations developed in Turkey to benefit from and ensure correct use of renewable energy resources, laid the foundations for various solar power plant installations, including land solar power plants and rooftop solar power plants. Roofs without solar power plants and lands unsuitable for agriculture are comparable to reservoirs without any dam to collect rainwater.
Generating electrical energy by installing solar power plants on roofs and suitable lands means creating added value for the country, nature and the future of humanity.
Being aware that consumption facilities generating their own electricity is a green, renewable, nature-friendly and value-added goal, PETRONET ENERJİ began its operations.
Our company aims to ensure that its country, institutions, businesses and individuals reach zero carbon targets pursuant to the Paris Climate Agreement by making almost zero carbon emissions to the nature through its investments of Solar Power Plants.
The products produced with the advantage gained from electrical energy expenses as a result of its investments in solar energy will provide competitive advantage at home and abroad, can be produced at affordable costs and provide employment in new fields.
In conclusion, both nature and man will win.
