Akenerji is the first power generation company founded as an auto-producer group in Turkey. One of the Turkish power sector’s biggest players, Akenerji is an integrated power company operating in wholesale energy trade and retail electricity sales, in addition to power generation, with 25 years of experience in the sector.
The partnership between Akkök and the Czech power company ČEZ evolved
into an equal-part strategic joint venture in Akenerji, with an agreement signed in October 2008.
Since 2005, Akenerji has concentrated on generation investments based on renewable power resources, to attain resource diversity in generation. It reaches renewable power resource based generation capacity of 388 MW in total by means of hydroelectric plants and wind plants, entering operation gradually. After the Egemer-Erzin Natural Gas Combined Cycle Power Plant, which alone has the capacity to meet 2.6 % of Turkey’s power need, started operations in July 2014, Akenerji’s total generation capacity reached 1,292 MW.
Upon completion of the Kemah Hydroelectric Power Plant, which is currently in the project phase and expected to generate approximately 560 GWh of electricity per annum, Akenerji alone will be generating a considerable part of Turkey’s power generation.
