Energy Efficiency in Industry
24% of the primary energy and 47% of electricity is used by the industrial sector in Turkey. Our country is amongst the top OECD countries with highest energy intensity. The Turkish industry mainly strives to operate in fields having intensity in terms of effort and energy. When our current sectorial composition, cost ratios per sector and our exportation per sector are examined, Energy Efficiency should be conceived as a struggle for the Turkish Industrial Sectors for survival. We see the following when countries such as Germany, Japan and Sweden are examined, which have low energy intensity:
An energy management concept woven with a philosophy on efficiency, superior quality main production processes as well as supportive technologies like waste heat recycling, compensation and automation. Indeed, the International Energy Agency (IEA) and the European Union (EU) have converged on their ideas concerning the industrial efficiency rates for all countries or the means for resolving engineering problems.
As a result, Energy Efficiency in Industry appears as an important subject today in terms of international competitive power. Studies are performed on fields such as energy accounting, control systems, isolation, new technologies and industrial processes, raw material properties, product varieties and particularities, seasonal conditions and environmental impacts, capacity usage, etc... in order to elevate Energy Efficiency in Industry.
The aim is to elevate energy efficiency in the Turkish Industry by promoting & enabling the enterprises of the industrial sector to effectively manage their energy consumption with the help of varying energy saving measures and energy-efficient technologies.
