Hydroelectricity is a critical source of energy in Turkey and substantial amounts of it can be generated due to Turkey's mountainous landscape, abundance of rivers, and its position surrounded by three seas. According to the International Hydropower Association Turkey is the world’s ninth largest producer of hydroelectricity in 2020. The main river basins are the Euphrates (Turkish: Fırat) and the Tigris (Turkish: Dicle) rivers. Many dams have been built throughout the country, and a peak of 28GW of power can be generated by hydroelectric plants with 3% of world capacity and almost 90 TWh generated in 2019 around 30% of the country's electricity. Generation varies by year depending on hydrological conditions. There are many policies that support the usage of hydroelectric energy. A number

  • Hydroelectricity is a critical source of energy in Turkey and substantial amounts of it can be generated due to Turkey's mountainous landscape, abundance of rivers, and its position surrounded by three seas. According to the International Hydropower Association Turkey is the world’s ninth largest producer of hydroelectricity in 2020. The main river basins are the Euphrates (Turkish: Fırat) and the Tigris (Turkish: Dicle) rivers. Many dams have been built throughout the country, and a peak of 28GW of power can be generated by hydroelectric plants with 3% of world capacity and almost 90 TWh generated in 2019 around 30% of the country's electricity. Generation varies by year depending on hydrological conditions. There are many policies that support the usage of hydroelectric energy. A number of dams built are subject to controversy as they have had many negative effects on the environment and the wildlife.
