Green Power Conferences, the company which has provided successful solar forums internationally across a number of photovoltaic markets has announced the dates for their ‘Solar Turkey’ conference. The Turkey conference, to be held in Istanbul on the 10-11 of December 2009 will offer a comprehensive guide and forum covering all issues relevant to the ever growing Turkish solar energy industry.

Over recent years, Turkey state legislation has sought to harness the high levels of solar irradiance enjoyed by the country by offering incentives designed to increase investment in the Turkish renewable energy sector. Key to these incentives is the implementation of a feed-in tariff which will offer premium, guaranteed rates for renewable energy suppliers feeding surplus energy back in to the national grid. The implications of such legislation and implications for the potential of the Turkish solar industry will be discussed in detail on the two dates at the Mövenpick Hotel announced by Green Power Conferences.

Up for discussion will be a number of issues relevant to the Turkish solar market. Key to this will be the huge potential for the sector with the state government set to introduce new renewable energy legislation in the autumn of this year. The potential will also be discussed in relation to the existing successes of the market with 2 million square metres already installed. Potential investment opportunities will be also be presented in relation to various solar technologies currently available for installation. Solar PV, Thermal and CSP will each provide exciting opportunities in the upcoming sector.

As with all previous Green Power Conferences, attendees will be exposed to a number of high profile players within the industry ranging from financial, manufacturing, technology development and project managers all offering invaluable experience and information about industry in Turkey. Networking opportunities will involve meeting with legal advisors, banks and utility companies in order to offer a perspective about the viability of solar investment within the Turkish system.

The Agenda will include information on pitfalls and challenges with a view to giving attendees real advice as to the ups and downs of solar investment in Turkey. With regards to the feed-in tariff, presentations will include real Turkish case studies with figures and market stats in support. Financing opportunities will be presented with various options for raising capital within Turkey. Similarly, the difffering technology options will be presented as to the benefits of each in respect to investment yields.

Green Power Conferences will be sure to deliver yet another successful solar forum as they have done elsewhere, worldwide. For anybody interested in solar investment, this event will be unmissable.
