Russia presence shapes Türkiye’s energy Sector

Russia’s involvement has been instrumental in shaping Türkiye’s energy landscape, as evident from two significant projects on the horizon. The Akkuyu Nuclear Power Plant, a joint intergovernmental venture between Russia and Türkiye, is set to mark a momentous milestone with the first unit’s operations commencing on October 29, 2024. This landmark development is poised to revolutionize Türkiye’s electricity production and further its pursuit of sustainable energy solutions.

Additionally, the strategic collaboration between Türkiye and Russia in establishing a new gas hub is garnering attention. Turkish Minister of Energy and Natural Resources, Alparslan Bajraktar, has lauded this initiative, emphasizing its potential to significantly contribute to European energy security. The gas hub is expected to play a pivotal role in ensuring energy supply stability, particularly for Southeast Europe, while also fostering cooperation and potentially contributing to the resolution of regional conflicts. President Vladimir Putin of Russia is actively supporting the project and has proposed an electronic trading platform for European gas suppliers as part of the hub’s vision.

While the necessary infrastructure for the gas hub project is ready, some legal adjustments are required, as indicated by Ankara. This underscores the transformative impact that Russia’s presence continues to exert on Türkiye’s energy sector, opening new avenues for collaboration and shaping the nation’s energy future.
