Turkey to Rely on Nuclear Power to Meet its Power Commitments

Summary

The essential role nuclear power will play in meeting the growing global demand for power while combating greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions is emphasized by countries such as Poland, Turkey and Belarus investing heavily in nuclear technology. Turkey is taking the initiative by including nuclear technology in its energy mix. It has plans to develop 20 nuclear power reactors by 2030. The rising levels of energy consumption, fuel imports and carbon emissions are the key reasons forcing the country to look for reliable and low carbon technologies such as nuclear to meet its power commitments. Spent fuel waste management, high initial capital cost and the need for skilled personnel to carry out nuclear activities are some of the key challenges in the nuclear road map of the country. Post Japan’s nuclear crisis, the government’s support becomes crucial for nuclear renaissance. The Turkish government should draft strategies to overcome the key nuclear constraints to ensure nuclear power development. Nuclear power countries such as Russia and Japan are interested in offering financial and technical help to Turkey to build its nuclear power plants. The technical expertise of these nuclear power-oriented countries will enable Turkey to install nuclear power plants and provide reliable and carbon-free power to its electric customers.
