Come meet the poster presenters to ask them questions and discuss their work

We would like to invite you to come and see the posters at our upcoming conference. The posters will showcase a diverse range of research topics, and will give delegates an opportunity to engage with the authors and learn more about their work. Whether you are a seasoned researcher or simply curious about the latest developments in your field, we believe that the posters will offer something of interest to everyone. So please join us at the conference and take advantage of this opportunity to learn and engage with your peers in the academic community. We look forward to seeing you there!

PO153: Turkish Renewable Energy Resource Zone (REZ) Regulation and Energy Island Approach in Marmara Sea: Impact on Grid, Green Hydrogen Production

Dolunay Guclüer Küpeli, Vice President, Turkish Offshore Wind Energy Association


In light of offshore wind expansions in the North and Baltic Seas in Europe, further ideas on using offshore space for renewable-based energy generation have evolved. Taking concrete steps towards a carbon-free society, Turkiye has recently approved 4 Renewable Energy Resource Zones (REZ) three of are in Marmara Sea. These zones will establish offshore energy hub in Marmara Sea. Several aspects related to the inclusion of these "energy island" in the current market setup should be discussed. To this end, this paper presents a first large-scale impact analysis of offshore hub on the whole Marmara Region power system and electricity market. Our study will analyze that energy hub in the Marmara Sea contribute to increase social welfare. To help the development of such projects, we focus on the identification of the challenges arising from the hubs. This paper also investigates the trade-offs between integrating energy islands via electricity versus hydrogen infrastructure. We set up a combined capacity expansion and electricity dispatch model to assess the role of electrolysers and electricity cables given the availability of renewable energy from the island.
