AWS Truepower Establishes Local Presence in Istanbul, Turkey
Barcelona, Istanbul, and New York – April 24, 2013 – AWS Truepower LLC, world leader in renewable energy consulting, today announced it is further strengthening its position in the global renewable market by establishing a partner consultancy in Istanbul, Turkey. This office will provide the Turkish renewable energy market with access to AWS Truepower’s thirty years of experience in technical consulting, advisory services, software and data for wind and solar technologies.
The new consultancy will be led by Mr. Ahmet Gurel and employs several staff with experience in renewable energy technology and has a well-established network of customers and partners.
“We look forward to working with Mr. Gurel and his team to expand our global footprint with their local presence,” explained Joan Aymamí, Vice President of International Business. “Having a local office in Turkey will help the company build and grow relationships, and address and respond to the unique needs of the market.”
Demand for renewable energy is growing rapidly in Turkey as growth in energy demand outpaces economic expansion. Projections show that by the end of 2023 the country could have 18 GW of new wind capacity. Turkey has the potential to install 40 GW of onshore wind-power capacity, with 11,000 megawatts of wind projects already licensed.
AWS Truepower will offer services such as renewable resource and energy assessments, infrastructure support services, independent engineering and due diligence studies, energy forecasting, grid integration studies, operational assessments and other services to support successful renewable energy projects. These services will help the Turkish market maximize system performance and better plan renewable energy delivery.
In addition to this new presence in Turkey, AWS Truepower serves the global renewable energy market from its headquarters in the USA (Albany, New York); offices in Spain (Barcelona), India (Bangalore), Brazil (Curitiba), Mexico (Guanajuato); and partnerships in Poland (Warsaw) and Argentina (Buenos Aires).
