28 Sep 2018

Turkey announced new National Energy Efficiency Action Plan (NEEAP) for the 2017-2023 period in January 2018. The NEEAP closely follows the policies and practices of the European Union in the area of energy efficiency. It examines Turkey’s domestic energy and natural resources to encourage Turkey to be more energy efficient and environmentally conscious. The Minister of Energy and Natural Resources stated that this plan includes USD 10.9 billion of planned investment. It will help the country reduce 14 per cent of primary energy consumption, which accounts for 23.9 million tonnes of oil equivalent by 2023 and will save around USD 30.2 billion by 2033[1].
