Overall Summary: 
The National Renewable Energy Action Plan (NREAP) for Turkey, presented under Directive 2009/28/ EC, is to establish strategies to promote the development of renewable energy in Turkey. These strategies are set to: • Ensure that the share of renewable energy in electricity production has increased to 30% of the total demand by 2023, based on the high accessibility of renewable sources in Turkey; • Fulfill the level of usage of renewable energies in transportation established in the Directive 2009/28/EC: a 10% share of renewable energy in the transportation sector; • Ensure technological and industrial development based on the installation of a higher renewable energy capacity by 2023; • Plan use of renewable energy resources taking into consideration the impact of climate change and sustainability to the ecosystem, orienting plans toward the mitigation of climate change etc.
Renewable Energy
RE priorities: 
• Ensure technological and industrial development based on the installation of a higher renewable energy capacity by 2023. [...] • Plan use of renewable energy resources taking into consideration the impact of climate change and sustainability to the ecosystem, orienting plans toward the mitigation of climate change (3). Avoid obstacles in developing renewable energy in the country, by enabling the following: - financial support for projects, - removal of barriers linked to the administrative process, - develop legal framework for the implementation of new solutions, - provide secure access to renewable energy for electricity generation - optimize the usage of any relevant infrastructure - develop support mechanisms. Develop an appropriate framework to promote the penetration of distributed generation based on renewable energies and the usage of renewable energy in buildings.
RE targets: 
These strategies are set to: • Ensure that the share of renewable energy in electricity production has increased to 30% of the total demand by 2023, based on the high accessibility of renewable sources in Turkey. • Fulfill the level of usage of renewable energies in transportation established in the Directive 2009/28/EC: a 10% share of renewable energy in the transportation sector.
