Around $16 billion is to be invested in the hydropower sector in Turkey under the government’s 10th Development Plan, newswires have reported.

The investment is the largest part of a wider $50 billion plan for the country’s energy market over the next four years. Other investments are planned for the country’s nuclear, coal and gas power sectors.

Hydro facilities currently meet around 25% of Turkey’s energy requirements, and the country has immense untapped potential.
