Energy Renewables

Alterna Energy Systems Ltd. is a project development and engineering company focusing on renewables in Turkey with offices in Ankara and Istanbul. For wind and solar PV power plant projects, Alterna provides services for:

  • Project Development: greenfield projects
  • Project Management: realization and construction monitoring of projects as owner’s engineer
  • Due Diligence: for acquisition of operational plants and ready-to-build projects

Our Team:

  • A team of dedicated meteorological engineers for energy assessment and data analysis.
  • Expertise in CFD (computational fluid dynamics), numerical methods, wind assessment and solar irradiation analysis.
  • Development and permits management know-how of unlicensed and licensed projects.
  • Strong relationships with regulatory organizations and power distribution companies.

The Market:

  • Number of unlicensed wind and solar PV projects are growing exponentially in Turkey.
  • Projects equal to or less than 1 MW does not require a license from the Energy Market Regulatory Authority. Multiple projects can be combined to sum up to 10 MW power plants.
  • Licensed wind farm project development is also on the rise: 3000 MW connection capacity issued for 2015 and 2000 MW for 2016. More new capacity will be permitted over the next years.
  • Currently, there are 4000 MW operational wind farms in Turkey – far from the official target of 20000 MW by 2023.
