Subsidies to Coal and Renewable Energy in Turkey (IISD)

This paper presents an overview of the cost of promoting investment in coal in the form of subsidies, including the external costs of coal use (including environmental and health costs). This paper seeks, where possible, to quantify the costs of subsidies and external costs so that the impact of these policies can be understood. By way of comparison, these costs are presented alongside analysis of the costs and impacts of solar and wind energy.
