Turkey’s demand for energy continues to grow at a rapid pace thanks to a stable and developing economy and rapid urbanization. The energy sector was liberalized and opened to competition in 2001 welcoming investors. YDA Group operates in the field of energy under the YDA Energy brand. YDA Energy started its investments in the field of renewable energy, working on comprehensive development activities and feasibility studies for power plants across the country for renewable energy resources, and is interested in solar energy and geothermal fields, which are in the licensing phase.
The 930 kWp solar energy system installed in 2016 at YDA Agriculture provides for the energy needs of the facility as well as selling the surplus energy to the grid. In addition, project work is underway to install a solar energy system on the roof of the Dalaman International Airport.
