Independent and cutting-edge analysis on Turkey and its neighborhood
Turkey should change its energy policy to simply optimize energy consumption by supporting energy efficiency, give up on supporting environmentally hazardous energy generation such as nuclear, coal, or shale gas, and aim for 100 percent renewable energy. This will help relieve the economy by reducing energy importation, protect the environment by reducing carbon emissions, and provide energy independence which is a national security matter. Turkey can set a great example in the global energy industry, leading the way for many countries to transit to carbon-free economies.
