Project Description

Following the recent developments in the Turkish Renewable Energy sector and as a follow up to the targets set forth in the National Renewable Energy Action Plan (NREAP), it is necessary to understand the untapped potential of other renewable resources such as off-shore wind and wave energy. The Bank is interested to support the Ministry of Energy and Natural Resources on exploring the off-shore wind and wave energy potential of Turkey with funds through European Unions’ Instrument for Pre-Accession Assistance (IPA). With the assignment the aim is to update and upgrade the existing wind energy potential atlas extending to off-shore all around Turkey and to create a wave energy potential atlas. In addition to the atlases, there is potential to review different setbacks requirements for wind turbines in the countries that have significant experience with wind energy.

The main objectives of the assignment will be:

  • To identify the off-shore wind energy potential in Turkey, conduct a market assessment regarding off-shore wind technology and review challenges, risks and opportunities in construction and operation phases of off-shore wind farms;
  • To prepare a cost breakdown and investment analysis of potential off-shore wind farms in Turkey;
  • To improve the existing renewable energy potential atlases of Turkey by using main meteorological inputs and base maps to be provided. The atlases to be developed will include:

    Wind Energy Potential Atlas (REPA) including both on-shore and off-shore potential in Turkey;
    Wave Energy Potential Atlas (DEPA) in Turkey’s seas;
  • To define setbacks for wind energy power plants in Turkey taking best practices in the world into account.

Access to Information Policy (AIP)

The AIP sets out how the EBRD discloses information and consults with its stakeholders so as to promote better awareness and understanding of its strategies, policies and operations following its entry into force on 1 January 2020. Please visit the Access to Information Policy page to find out what information is available from the EBRD website.

Independent Project Accountability Mechanism (IPAM)

If efforts to address environmental, social or public disclosure concerns with the Client or the Bank are unsuccessful (e.g. through the Client’s Project-level grievance mechanism or through direct engagement with Bank management), individuals and organisations may seek to address their concerns through the EBRD’s Independent Project Accountability Mechanism (IPAM).

IPAM independently reviews Project issues that are believed to have caused (or to be likely to cause) harm. The purpose of the Mechanism is: to support dialogue between Project stakeholders to resolve environmental, social and public disclosure issues; to determine whether the Bank has complied with its Environmental and Social Policy or Project-specific provisions of its Access to Information Policy; and where applicable, to address any existing non-compliance with these policies, while preventing future non-compliance by the Bank.

Please visit the Independent Project Accountability Mechanism webpage to find out more about IPAM and its mandate; how to submit a Request for review; or contact IPAM  via email to get guidance and more information on IPAM and how to submit a request.
