What is Carbon Avoidance?

Carbon avoidance is the prevention of future carbon emissions from being released into the atmosphere. Carbon avoidance projects include renewable energy, improved forestry and land-use, but also handpump restoration and efficient cookstoves, because they require less wood for communities’ daily cooking and for boiling water. In each, current emissions are reduced by improved alternatives, but existing CO2 is left untouched.

About this Project


Since the beginning of the century, Turkey has been ranked second to China in its demand increase for electricity and natural gas. Rather than relying on oil, natural gas, and coal, sustainable electricity solutions need to be funded in order to support the country’s growing needs, without negatively impacting the environment.

Project Outcome

The project has installed Sah WPP with 105 MWM/105 MWe capacity in the Bandirma district of Balikesir and Karacabey district of Bursa, Turkey. The project has 35 turbines, each with an output of 3.0 MW. The total electricity production of the project is expected to be 341.275 MWh/year. Sah WPP has connected via a 35 km transmission line to the 154 kV Gobel Transformer Station and the generated electricity is supplied to Turkey’s national electricity grid. Via supporting this project, you can offset greenhouse gas emissions whilst replacing fossil fuel power generation and contributing to the development of the wind energy sector in Turkey, as well as supporting the local economy by creating local employment and offering high-quality trainings.
