Turkey issues 710MW pre-licenses | Windpower Monthly


So-called ‘pre-licenses’ were awarded to 13 wind projects meeting necessary requirements and participating in grid capacity auctions. The projects must now complete permitting.

Successful bids ranged from a $5.12/kWh to the -$1.61/kWh offered by the RES Anatolia arm of RES Group for one 70MW project. Six successful offers were below $0/kWh.

Those bidding with negative prices won’t necessarily lose money, but they can’t participate in Turkey’s feed-in tariff system.

They will sell power on the free market and pay TEIAS the amount of their negative bid — a sort of “penalty” — for the first ten years of operation, explained Christian Johannes, general manager of wind consultancy Re-consult.

As is the case for other producers, earnings may be supplemented for five years with local content price premiums.

The remaining 2.3GW of the 3GW round should be assigned pre-licenses this year, while a 2GW round is expected in 2018.

The assignment of the first 710MW in pre-licenses comes ahead of a deadline this month for bids in a “renewable energy designated area” auction system known by its Turkish acronym Yeka.

Yeka will see some 1GW in projects assigned to a single consortium meeting strict local content requirements.
