With an expected Energy Feed-In Act for renewable energies due soon in Turkey, PV equipment supplier Schmid noted at a workshop it hosted with its Turkish sales partner, PV Teknik, that the country was poised to soon start producing PV modules for the domestic market. Turkey was claimed to have the best potential for solar energy after Spain, due to its geographical location and climate conditions.
Approximately 50 people attended the workshop. One of the presenters was Prof. Dr. Sener Oktik from the University of Mugla, who noted that the Turkish PV industry is currently all set and ready to begin production, especially of solar modules.
Schmid and PV Teknik hope to become a key equipment and turnkey solutions provider to the nascent Turkish PV manufacturing industry.
