Energy efficiency: Secret ingredient that can make Turkey’s energy transition a success
(EurActiv, 15 Dec 2020) Turkey has huge potential in energy efficiency with plans for a 14% reduction into total energy demand by 2023, compared to 2017. To meet that, innovation will need to tap into investment and the country’s wealth of knowledge, write Değer Saygın and Jan Rosenow.
Değer Saygın is from SHURA Energy Transition Center, which provides knowledge, products and services to the Turkish energy community. Jan Rosenow is with the Regulatory Assistance Project, an NGO focusing on policy to accelerate the transition to a clean, reliable and energy efficient future.
At a recent pan-European energy efficiency conference in Paris, representatives of a large energy service company shared the well-kept secret of how they source energy-efficient heating technology to install in Europe: they get it from Turkey.
Even though Turkey may not come to mind as a global leader in energy efficiency, energy efficiency has been on the country’s agenda for a long time.
Turkey’s National Energy Efficiency Action Plan aims for a 14% reduction in total primary energy demand by 2023, compared to 2017 levels. The plan covers the energy sector’s entire value chain from improving supply-side efficiency to reducing transmission and distribution grid losses and demand-side reductions.
