Turkey continues its incredible pace in geothermal develoment

With the announcement of an additional 33 MW now online with the Zorlu Enerji Alasehir plant we reported on this morning (see here), Turkey shows its continuous pace in geothermal development. The company now has an installed geothermal power generation capacity of 538 MW.

Earlier this spring we reported about Turkey being no. 10 in the Global Top 10 of geothermal nations when it comes to installed power generation capacity. With the latest additions at Efeler and now Alasehir II, the country has made a jump ahead of Japan.

Turkey is now ranked no. 9 in the top 10 just behind Kenya and ahead of Japan.
