A protest in Keleş against the proposed Bursa coal plant in October 2012. The banner reads "we don't want the thermal power plant."[1]

In July 2013, the state-owned Turkish Coal Enterprises (TKI) announced that it had awarded Çelikler Elektrik Üretim a contract to build a 270-MW coal-fired power plant near its Bursa-Keleş coal mine. Çelikler has applied for environmental permits for the plant.[2][3]

There have been protests in Keleş since at least 2007 against the proposed construction of a coal plant in the area, with local civil society organizations playing a leading role.[4][1]

According to the Turkey Energy Market Regulatory Authority website, the power station's pre-license expired on October 2, 2017, and it never received an approved EIA permit. With no new applications filed, the project appears to be defunct.[5] In addition, the EIA report was cancelled as of January 2017, and the project is neither on the pre-permit nor permit list of EMRA.[6]
