On behalf of Polat Energy, the leading company of the energy sector, Polat Holding Energy Group President Arkın Akbay will be present at the congress with the aim of free market operation and efficient use of energy in the free market in the supply-demand balance, the place and importance of wind energy in Turkey's Net Zero 2053 target, additional capacity increases. It brought up the issues of supporting supply security, re-strengthening investments, realizing more economical wind energy investments by making use of the existing infrastructure.
Emphasizing that the Turkish industry can strengthen its competitiveness by accelerating the permit processes related to the sector, renewable energy supply agreements and the production of green certificates, Akbay said that capacity increases with the storage facilities combined with the production facilities are a very positive development, that sustainable finance is indispensable for the sector, and that the capacity competition model is a must. He emphasized that it should be improved in a way that will pave the way for real investors.
Polat Holding Energy Group President Arkın Akbay stated that the long-term Renewable Energy Supply Agreements will make the electricity energy costs of our industry predictable, can be a precaution against the Carbon Regulations at the Border with the green certificate, and will be the assurance of providing economic financing conditions for increasing renewable capacity. At the same time, he emphasized that the first Renewable Energy Resources Support Mechanism, which carried the wind capacity to the level of 11,000 MW between 2010-2021, is an important tool for increasing the renewable energy capacity.
Speaking on behalf of Polat Enerji, Arkın Akbay stated that they are always ready to invest in renewable energy. He mentioned that the provision of additional capacity with the requirement of establishing storage units will enhance quality and enable a rapid response to increased demand. However, Akbay also pointed out the risk of creating inefficiencies due to excessive backup storage capacity when the ratio for capacity is tied to 1 MW of additional capacity requiring 1 MW of storage. He emphasized the importance of regulating it in a way that meets the needs of imbalance management and overall ancillary service support according to the production type, which would be more valuable in terms of total cost.
