Geothermal Power Plants in Turkey

Abstract

Turkey lies in a highly active tectonic region, the Alpine-Himalayan orogenic belt. There are almost 200 geothermal prospects, but nearly all of them are suitable only for low-temperature applications. The one area that has high-temperature resources is associated with the Büyük Menderes Graben in western Anatolia.
