  A new generation of particle accelerators based on an Energy Recovery Linac (ERL) is a promising tool for a number of new applications. These include high brilliance light sources in a wide range of photon energies, electron cooling of ion beam and ERL-based electron-hadron colliders. Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin started a feasibility study of GeV-scale multi-turn ERL-based light source (LS). This LS will work in diffraction limited regime in X-rays and with a short length of a light pulse in femtosecond region. The average and peak brightness will be at least an order of magnitude higher than synchrotron-based LS. In this work an overview of the future multi-turn light source is given. Modeling of the Beam Break Up instability is presented.
