The privatisation of distribution regions in Turkey has allowed grid investments to be conducted in a more systematic manner. The primary aim is to supply uninterrupted and high-quality energy to the different regions of the country by reducing the loss and theft ratio. In the third investment period (2016-2020) the total investment budget has been increased by 116% from that of the second investment term (2011-2015). The budget allocation was made by taking currents needs of the grid and different regions into account. 95% of all investments are aimed at improving grid infrastructure and enlarging grid network. Technological investments comprise 5% of the budget, on average, which is expected to increase by 2020.
