Publication: “Energy Efficiency Technology Atlas for Turkey’s building sector” May 2018

GIZ, under the BMU Project Energy Efficiency in Public Buildings in Turkey, prepared a study entitled the Energy Efficiency Technology Atlas for Turkey’s building sector for the Ministry of Environment and Urbanisation of Turkey (MoEU).

The study explores the market potential of Technologies in accelerating the energy efficiency of buildings and informs relevant decision makers and private sector actors on the products, services, actors and driving forces behind the energy efficiency market in Turkey. It serves as a key source to identify where more efforts are required to accelerate the availability and cost-effective deployment of these technologies and strengthen the construction markets, and where specific potentials lie.

While the details can be found in the forthcoming full version of the Technology Atlas, interested parties can consult the Executive Summary and Roadmap document for the summary of the findings for the future market development of building energy technologies, aggregated key messages and action needs by stakeholders for a total of six technology groups: thermal insulation, windows, space and water heating, air conditioning, ventilation and lighting.

The publication was first launched and presented in Turkey at the Energy Efficiency Forum in İstanbul (29-30 March 2018) and then at Berliner Energietage (07-09 May 2018), where Federal Minister Svenja Schulz also received the first English copy of the study.

The plan is to follow up on the study with stakeholder consultations on how to put the suggested strategies to foster the Turkish energy-efficiency technology market into action.

The electronic copy of the Executive Summary and Roadmap document can be found in the Documentation section of the website. .
