Turkey derives 88% of its total energy generation and nearly 70% of its electricity generation from fossil fuels, aims to increase the usage of coal, primarily domestic coal, and its share in energy generation. The coal fired electricity production is instrumental strategy of the Turkish National Energy Policy.
2. COALFIRED POWER GENERATION IN TURKEY 2.1 Coal reserves. In 2014, coal accounted for 29.2% of total primary energy demand, while natural gas, oil and hydraulic energy accounted for 32.5%, 28.5% and 2.8% respectively. Nonhydro renewable resources accounted for 6.7% of the total primary energy demand of Turkey in the same year.
The most important power stations in Turkey are listed here. For a more complete list please see the World Resources Institute "Global Power Plant Database". Turkey generates about 300 TWh of electricity per year.
In 2018 the 20GW of coalfired power stations in Turkey generated 113 TWh, which was 37% of the nation's electricity. A little over half is generated from imported hard coal and almost all the rest from local lignite.

Coal imports to Turkey are expected to continue to increase in the future. At Silopi near the Iraqi border, the third unit of Ciner Groups 405 MW asphaltitefired power plant was commissioned in 2015 by China National Machinery Engineering Corporation. Lignite
Turkey may soon have the worlds biggest coalfired plant – one of 80 new plants planned as part of the countrys coal boom but resistance is growing and many point to huge solar potential

Since 2000, the world has doubled its coalfired power capacity to around 2,000 gigawatts (GW) after explosive growth in China and India. A further 236GW is being built and 336GW is planned. More recently, 227GW has closed due to a wave of retirements across the EU and US. Combined with a rapid
