G20 Energy Efficiency Policies and Measures

Turkey

Description: The Energy Efficiency Law, adopted in 2007, sets the rules for energy management in industry and in large buildings, project support, energy efficiency consultancy companies, voluntary agreements, etc. It affects industry, power plants, transmission and distribution systems, buildings, services and transport. Enforced in 2009, the regulation on Increased Energy Efficiency in the Use of Energy Resources and Energy put in place authorizations and certifications for universities, engineering organizations and energy consultancy companies to support energy efficiency projects in industry through voluntary agreements. The Energy Strategy Plan sets a 20% primary energy intensity reduction target for 2023 compared to the 2008 level.
In March 2011, Turkey and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) signed a MoU for the launch of a Sustainable Energy Action Plan (SEAP). The EBRD will cooperate in the drafting and implementation of regulatory and financial instruments, and will directly participate in the financing of the related projects.
