The Turkish power grid depends mainly on fossil fuels to provide energy to the country. Demand for electricity in Turkey is growing rapidly; thus, greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are projected to increase. The Gunder Hydro Power Project is a 28.22 MW hydropower plant that channels water from the Gunder Creek to produce electricity. Located in the Karaman Province of Turkey, the project generates clean, renewable power that can be fed into the national grid to displace fossil-fuel-based power. As a result, the hydro project reduces a significant amount of carbon dioxide and other pollutants from power generation that would otherwise have been emitted into the atmosphere. Co-benefits for this project include creating local employment opportunities and helping Turkey to stimulate and commercialize the grid-connected to renewable energy technologies and markets. This project is third-party verified and registered through the Verified Carbon Standard.
