The target calls for Turkey to more than triple its current capacity of 4,460MW over the next 15 years.
But it falls a long way short of the ambitious aims outlined in the country's renewable energy action plan in February, which targeted 20GW of wind by 2023.
Turkey's Intended National Determined Contribution (INDC) to COP21 proposes a 21% cut in greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 from the "business as usual" level.
That means total emissions will continue to rise as the Turkish economy grows, but by 21% less than it would without the proposed measures.
The modest contribution outlined for wind suggests that the target set in the renewable energy action plan is proving impossible to meet, or that Turkey is reserving room for manoeuvre if the Paris negotiations push it to cut emissions further.
