Developments in the energy and environment sector of Turkey
Turkey has become one of the fastest growing energy markets in the world in parallel to its economic growth registered in the last ten years. The growing energy demand in Turkey is one of the significant factors along with market liberalization and the country’s potential role as an energy terminal in its region. Turkish government encourages investors to implement energy projects in Turkey with new incentives on renewable energy. The main target is to increase the share of renewable resources by 2023 to at least 30%.
Energy efficiency is a major concern of the country. Turkey’s energy efficiency target is to reduce energy intensity by 20 per cent by 2023 compared to 2010. Turkey is estimated to hold an energy-saving potential of 30% in the building industry, 20% in the production industry, and 15% in the transportation industry.
Environmental concerns are becoming a priority issue in Turkey mainly due to economic growth as a result of the increased energy demand, industrialization and urbanization. Waste water treatment and air treatment are prioritized areas within environmental technologies. Currently waste water treatment is provided only to 52% of the population. The target is to increase this ratio to 95%. Regulations for control and prevention of industrial air pollution are implemented in line with the relevant EU legislations.
