More Than 70 Legal Professionals and Investors Join Renewable Energy Investment Webinar


More than 70 legal professionals and investors joined CBC Law for the first in our series of webinars co-hosted with Clyde & Co. Held on 6 May 2021, the webinar provided potential investors with a comprehensive overview of renewable energy opportunities in Turkey from the industry’s key players.

As the importance of the renewables sector continues to develop globally, Turkey is ambitious to stimulate growth in the market. While investment in renewable energy continues to expand across many jurisdictions the Turkish Government is backing renewable energy as part of its energy strategy, considering the future of solar, hydro and geothermal resources and the offshore wind potential in the Sea of ​​Marmara and the Aegean Sea.

The webinar, which was hosted and moderated by Georg Scherpf and Orcun Cetinkaya, addressed the country’s current and future opportunities in relation to the general legal framework for renewable energy in Turkey. Investors who joined the webinar benefitted from detailed insight into the support programs currently in force with speakers from CBC Law and Clyde & Co., plus a host of industry experts. Topics covered also included the protection of investment and dispute resolution considerations.

Renewable energy investment specialist Volkan Öztürk, from YILSAN Yatırım Holding A.Ş gave his unique insight into the sector’s future with his speech “Renewables in Turkey in 10 Years”, while Batu Aksoy, from Turcas Petrol A.Ş delivered a keynote speech on The Energy Landscape in Turkey. Other speakers on the day included Murat Durak (DÜRED), Özgür Altintas (CBC Law), Georg Scherpf (Clyde & Co.), Habib Babacan (Nordex Enerji A.Ş), and Anna-Sophie Waldmann, and Dilara Kamphuis (Clyde & Co.), covering subjects ranging from potential for offshore wind in Turkey, to an overview of energy market law, regulatory authorities and current tariffs.

Further renewable energy webinars will be held later this year. If you have any questions or would like to register your interest, please email
