Turkey is a fascinating country. Where East meets West and where Europe merges almost seamlessly with Asia, Turkey can boast one of the world’s most diverse cultures. And now we know that Turkey also has a ‘Distributed Power’ market to rival that of Germany and the USA.
Certainly, that is the case when considering gas engines in the 400 kWe to 20 MWe size range.
Our latest analysis shows that 350 MWe of new gas engine capacity was installed in Turkey in 2013. This compares with around 440 MWe for Germany – the world’s largest gas engine market – and a little under 300 MWe for the USA. By 2020, we anticipate that the Turkish market will increase to almost 500 MWe of new capacity every year. Yet, as little as 10 years ago, Turkey had a gas engine market worth a paltry 50 MWe per year.
