Until recently, Turkish electricity and natural gas markets were seen as single markets where all the operations (generation, distribution and sales) were undertaken by vertically integrated public entities. However, when it was realized that it is impossible to meet the future needs for the supply of electricity under such a structure, Turkish electricity and natural gas sectors entered into an era of reform. This was in parallel with the recent developments in the world as well. Since entered into force, many changes have been made on various legislation, especially the Electricity Market Act and Natural Gas Market Act in order for the markets to attain a competitive structure. These acts and the secondary legislation are amongst the most amended legislations in Turkey.
