Transportation Sector Transformation: Integrating Electric Vehicles Into Türkiye’s Distribution Grids

The electrification of the transportation sector with renewable energy sources will play a key role in achieving Türkiye’s net zero emission targets for 2053. SHURA’s Net Zero 2053 study shows that the electrification of the transportation sector will reach 58% by 2053, emphasizing that decarbonizing the transportation sector can be achieved through the transition to electric vehicles and the use of clean fuels. SHURA’s 2019 report, “Transport Sector Transformation: Integrating Electric Vehicles into Türkiye’s Distribution Grids” demonstrated that by 2030, 2.5 million electric vehicles could be integrated into Türkiye’s distribution grids with almost no additional investment and limited impact on network operations. As a continuation of the 2019 report, SHURA Energy Transition Center has prepared the report “Transportation Sector Transformation: Integrating Electric Vehicles into Türkiye’s Distribution Grids,” examining the impacts of electric vehicles on Türkiye’s electricity distribution grids. Based on analyses of two major electricity distribution grids, the study investigates the additional investment requirements arising from e-mobility, highlights countermeasures such as smart charging mechanisms to facilitate EV integration, and proposes policy recommendations for the smooth integration of e-mobility loads into the Turkish power system. The study presents an in- depth analysis of the integration of electric vehicles and LDVs into Türkiye’s distribution grid, projecting to the year 2035, addressing the implications of increased e-mobility on grid infrastructure and proposing strategic solutions to mitigate potential challenges.
