International 100% Renewable Energy Conference



Effects of 100% Renewable Implementation Costs and Energy in Burdur


The transformation from fossil to renewable in energy production is increasing every year, accelerating with technological developments and the damage caused by the changing climate. This transformation, which is carried out by energy producing companies, has started to be included in the countries’ own road maps. Thus, in this renewable energy-centered transformation, countries include these resources in their long-term strategic plans. Thus, they first contribute to preventing climate change and then reducing their countries’ dependence on foreign energy. Countries use current scientific methods to determine road maps. One of the most important methods in this process is the energy modeling system. In this system, countries or local governments can measure the impact of beneficial technologies such as renewable or harmful technologies such as fossil by revealing their energy equivalence with a mathematical model. This method allows to see the behavior of the system without technological investment yet. In this study, with the help of Answer-TIMES model, which is one of the energy modeling methods, it was aimed to extract the energy balance between the years of 2016-2031 in Burdur. In the second stage, it is aimed to determine the potential of all renewable resources in Burdur and to apply the technological, economic and ecological effects to the city in the medium term by applying these resources to the model. According to the baseline scenario, Burdur’s electricity consumption is projected as 1.95-5.15 PJ between 2016-2031. The potential of solar, biomass and wind applied in alternative scenarios was put into operation in 2019 and showed that the city can meet all electricity needs in the period until 2031. The application of renewable resources has also been observed to dramatically reduce electricity imports and carbon emissions produced by the city.
