Today, approximately 70% of the energy used in Turkey comes from foreign sources. Given the extent of Turkish energy dependency and the considerable lack of domestically produced energy, the Turkish government has taken steps to look for alternative resources. In the last few years the government's shift in thinking about fuel has lead to significant growth in Turkey's renewable energy sector. The permitting process for both licensed and unlicensed project applications have been renewed and supported in recent years as a result of newly instituted government policies. The limiting and accelerating factors of licensed permitting processes have also taken on a more critical role in the development of future applications for renewable energy production. An overview of the permitting processes in Romania and Germany offer a diverse perspective of the various possibilities for continued development in the future. The wind energy potential alone based on REPA data, forecasts a techno economical wind energy potential of 48,000 MW. Additionally, the solar energy potential based on projected surface area figures now total approximately 220,000 MW, compared with existing installed substation capacities which produced around 130,000 MW in 2011. By the end of 2012 2,000 MW of the total techno economical wind energy potential was installed, another 4,000 MW of power production has been given permission to be developed but these outputs fall far short of the Ministry of Energy and Natural Resources' clearly pronounced target of 20,000 MW of installed wind power plants by 2023. At the beginning of 2013, the total installed solar PV power plants did not even reach 1,000 MW of installed capacity. Still, Turkish wind and solar energy potentials are promising and represent new investment interests in the development of the renewable energy sector in Turkey. The assessment of all these themes will provide a complete overview for the newly growing sector not only in terms of energy production but also in the development of energy transmission infrastructure in Turkey.
