ENERGY PRODUCTION IN GAP

Karakaya Dam and HPP

106.8 billion kWh

Ataturk Dam and HPP

74.5 billion kWh

Kralkızı Dam and HPP (*)

0.3 billion kWh

Karkamis Dam and HPP (*)

0.6 billion kWh

Dicle Dam and HPP (*)

0.1 billion kWh

Birecik Dam and HPP (*)

1.6 billion kWh

TOTAL

183.9 billion kWh

(*) In operation since December 1999.
(**) Energy production started at the end of 2000.

Together with Karakaya and Ataturk dams which together provide a significant part of energy in the interconnected system, the total energy production in the HPPs of the region including Kralkizi, Karkamis, Dicle and Birecik which started operating in 1999 and 2000 reached about 184 billion kWh as of the end of 2001 (in cumulative terms). Expressed in terms of alternative energy sources, energy produced by the GAP region is equivalent to 46 million tons of fuel oil or 35.5 million cubic meters of natural gas.

The GAP region has a share of almost half with 11.5 billion kWh in the total energy production of Turkey in 2001. In the same period the GAP region had a share of 9.3 % in 123 billion kWh generated in Turkey (total of thermal, hydraulic and wind energy).
