Joe Biden put renewable energy at the heart of his plans to reboot the US economy. That’s predictable for the solar sector which will boost new solar installations and will increase global demand.
On the other hand, dynamics are changing for our continent as well. EU’s executive Commission sees carbon border levy as a ‘matter of survival’. This is also an explanation which should not be underestimated for solar sector in Europe.
Carbon border levy is in fact quite important for Turkey, as an export-oriented country. Many international brands are aware of geopolitical importance and advantages of labour force of Turkey. Many of them have facilities or OEM partners in the country. If Turkish manufacturers will not consider about carbon-friendly actions in the short run, they can lose advantages of international market.
So, what should be ‘the lessons learnt’ for Turkish sector players?
- Manufacturers should transform their factories to environmental friendly facilities. (Using clean energy sources, better waste management, using less clean water etc.)
- High demand is clearly visible in America & EU. Solar industry should prepare itself in case of any shortage of solar components such as cell, glass etc.
- On the other hand, demand and shortage will obviously bring price increase in solar components. Investors and EPC players should be ready for fluctuation in prices.
