The amendment to the Electricity Market Law, which aims to promote energy storage investments, was published in the Official Gazette on July 5th, 2022.
The change in the law, made under the title “Production Activities,” provides energy investors with the right to obtain a license without competition for the wind and/or solar power plants to be established proportionate to the capacity of the energy storage investment in return for committing to make an electricity storage investment.
The amendment also includes providing the same right for capacity increases of existing wind and solar power plants.
