2030’a kadar Türkiye için Alternatif Elektrik Enerjisi Arz Senaryoları
Turkey’s energy market is going through a period of rapid change. Throughout the last decade, power demand has grown by 70%. This is a trend that is expected to continue. The Turkish government has articulated an energy future that would involve rapid expansion of coal-fired generation, to meet the needs of a growing economy and reduce the country’s dependence on imported gas. This strategy is likely to result in a further push for Turkey’s rapidly increasing GHG emissions (Between 1990 and 2012, country’s emissions from public electricity and heat production increased by 286%). Against this backdrop, WWF-Turkey commissioned Bloomberg New Energy Finance (BNEF) to evaluate if a renewables-based alternative strategy could be just as cost-effective as the current coal dominated strategy of Turkey, to meet the increasing power demand.

Following a one year spell in finance sector, he has been working for WWF-Turkey as a conservation supervisor since 2006. Since 2012, he has been in charge of the Climate & Energy Programme, focusing on the energy strategy of Turkey and its nexus with climate change. Transition of Turkey’s economy to a low-carbon path and scaling up renewable energy in Turkey in accordance with WWF’s 100% Renewable Energy Vision are priority areas of WWF-Turkey’s climate work.
