Background on Plant

Naren Enerji Elektrik Üretim A.Ş. has proposed a coal-fired power station of 1960 MW (2 x 980 MW) in the town of Karabiga.[2]

In 2016, several large wind turbines were erected on the site of proposed coal plant, as shown by archival satellite photos in Google Earth.

As of June 2019 the project does not appear on permit lists of the Energy Market Regulatory Authority (EMRA) and it appears to be cancelled.

In October 2014, it was reported that the EIA of the Karabiga power plant would be separated into 4 parts. The report suggests that this is illegal, as the EIA should be conducted in one full part.[3]

In February 2019, the Air Pollution & Climate Secretariat (AirClim) published a report by Fredrik Lundberg, an energy policy specialist in Sweden. He urged for the stop of production of coal power plants, including the Naren Karabiga power plant.[4]
