Turkey has introduced a more comprehensive and detailed
regulatory regime for incentives available when using domestically
manufactured equipment in renewable energy generation. The new
regime outlines increased details about the terms, applicable
amount, documentation, and supervision of additional participation
prices for using domestically manufactured equipment in electricity
production facilities based on renewable resources.
The Regulation on Supporting Domestically Manufactured Equipment
Used in the Production Facilities Based on Renewable Energy
Resources ("Regulation") was published
in Official Gazette number 29752 on 24 June 2016. The Regulation
was issued in accordance with the Law on Utilization of Renewable
Energy Resources for the Purpose of Generating Electrical Energy
The Regulation's main provisions include:
License holder entities wishing to benefit from the additional
domestic participation price for the first time must apply to the
Ministry of Energy and Natural Resources (or institution authorized
by the Ministry) by 1 August of each year. The Regulation outlines
specific documents required for such applications.
The additional domestic participation price will be announced
by 31 October of each year.
The additional domestic participation price will be granted to
applicants for five years, starting from the production
facility's commissioning. It is calculated via a formula
included in the Regulation.
The Manufacturing Determination Board has discretion to inspect
equipment used in the production facilities by license holder
entities which apply for the additional domestic participation
The Regulation supersedes the Regulation on Domestically
Manufactured Equipment Used in the Production Facilities Based on
the Renewable Energy Resources published in Official Gazette number
27696 on 19 June 2011. Please see this link for the full text of the Regulation (only
