World Bank calls for Turkish energy efficiency boost

A new World Bank report, ‘Republic of Turkey: Institutional Review of Energy Efficiency‘, concludes that critical institutional and functional gaps will prevent Turkey from realising its stated energy efficiency goals.

Turkey has placed energy efficiency as a key component of both its energy strategy and its National Climate Change Strategy and Action Plan. However, while the overall policy framework is relatively strong, energy efficiency poses a significant institutional challenge, the World Bank says.

Jas Singh, World Bank Senior Energy Specialist and report author, says: ‘Energy efficiency is among the least expensive and cleanest ’energy resources’ and Turkey needs to do more to exploit this critical and abundant resource. Energy efficiency can help Turkey enhance its energy security, sustain economic growth, and help protect the environment.‘
