    We haven’t had too much of green coming out from Turkey since quite a while now, and it isn’t surprising that we’re all too happy to get wind of the newest green venture by the Turks. Combining together wind, solar, and natural gas energy, Turkey will soon play home to a one-of-a-kind hybrid energy plant that will generate all the renewable energy it can around the clock, without depending solely on any of these energy sources, making it versatile. Equipment for the plant expected to sport a 508-megawatt capacity will be pooled in by GE. To be set up in Karaman, the plant will be developed by MetCap and will power up about 600,000 Turkish homes.

    To top it all, the plant will boast zero liquid discharge, low emissions, and a rapid-response making it highly eco-efficient as well as astoundingly fuel-efficient.
