On the eve of the Rio+ 20 Summit in Brazil, the U.S-based Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) released a report ranking the world's biggest countries on their use of renewable energy (ipsnews.net).

The report states that “some developing countries, while still playing a minor role in green energy, are increasingly investing in clean sources. China, Brazil and Turkey are leading the way for developing nations”. Having been singled out in a global report, the outlook is looking positive for the Turkish green energy sector.


Leading policy makers and the developers and utilities who have created the Turkish renewables industry will take part in the Turkish International Renewable Energy Congress in October in Istanbul to discuss the next steps for the industry. Book now to maintain your position in the market and establish yourself as a key stakeholder.

Bringing together major players in geothermal, solar and wind with government ministers and regulators, this is the place to be to ensure you make the contacts needed to capitalise on the rapidly expanding Turkish market.
