2. Intersolar Summit Turkey: Signs point towards PV industry growth

On April 6th, 2016 politics and business representatives will convene within the framework of the Intersolar Summit Turkey being hosted at the WOW Istanbul Hotels & Convention Center in order to discuss the potential and investment opportunities in the growing solar market of the surrounding region.

Participants can expect high-caliber lectures which will enable them to envisage particular framework conditions and unique opportunities for the solar business in Turkey. 

In Turkey, experts expect strong PV market growth in the next few years. For a more precise market entry strategy, investors and companies need anchor points which can be used to open up access to target markets.

“We are very pleased to be returning to the Intersolar Summit Turkey in Istanbul. From our point of view, the developments in the Turkish solar market are positive and contribute to overall sustainable growth for the sector - especially the organic growth within and throughout Turkey as well as the resulting synergistic, domino effect”, says Markus Elsässer, Managing Director of Solar Promotion International GmbH. 

The Intersolar Summit Turkey, which takes place on April 6 in the Turkish metropolis of Istanbul, provides participants with a very special opportunity to obtain profound market knowledge of the region and make excellent contacts with prominent local and international players. Turkey is a prospering, driving force in the expansion of renewable energies in and throughout Europe, with an additional increase of around 500 MWp expected in this year.

Experts agree on the enormous potential of the market and see an annual capacity of GWp in 2017 as being a realistic possibility. The high demand in the unlicensed segments for installations up to 1 MWp also contributes to the positive developments. An accumulated value of 5 GWp in the Pre-Application-Phase has thus far been submitted and approved.  

The one-day conference offers an extensive program with well-established experts including high-level representatives from politics, industry and associations. In addition, the conference also serves and functions as an excellent opportunity to enrich and expand existing contacts and initiate new business relationships.

The keynote speakers at the event are Münib Karakılıç, General Manager of the Renewable Energy General Directorate (YEGM), Oliver Schäfer, President of Solar Power Europe as well as Dr. Kemal Gani Bayraktar, President of the GÜNDER Turkish Section of the International Solar Association ISES. In addition to the evaluation of profitable business models for the Turkish market, experts analyze the opportunities and risks of recently introduced import duties for solar modules. 

Further contributions are being brought from international companies such as Bloomberg New Energy Finance, the German Solar Industry Association (BSW), PI Photovoltaic Solar Institute Berlin, AEG, SCHMID Group as well as RCT Solutions and will focus on new business opportunities with a view of both the licensed and license-free segments, new financing models as well as the potential of local production. Within the framework of a podium discussion moderated by Ali Murat Becerikli, Head of EU Financial Institutions and Department Directorate General for Foreign Relations at ETKB, current trends for the financing of solar projects will be evaluated and assessed carefully and on the basis of experiences from the field.
