Hide / Show Abstract

This series consists of two components. The first is an annual compilation by the International Energy Agency containing a broad analysis of recent trends and an easily accessible overview of energy policy during the last 12 months along with summaries of individual country reports done during the period. It also presents the major findings of the latest World Energy Outlook, key statistical information and brief summaries of major IEA publications released during the past year. The second component is the set of country reviews produced each year. IEA countries are on a five-year review cycle, which means that approximately five countries are reviewed in detail each year and published as part of the Energy Policies of IEA Countries series.

Hide / Show Abstract

The International Energy Agency's review of Turkey's energy policies and programmes.  Following a summary of the conclusions and recommendations, the report surveys the general energy scene and energy policy in Turkey, looks at energy and the environment, reviews efforts to enhance energy efficiency, and then examines developments related to oil, natural gas, coal, renewable energy, and electricity.  The book closes with a look at Turkey's R&D efforts related to energy. 

The book finds that Turkey has undertaken significant reforms to open energy markets, but needs to undertake further actions to see the process to a successful conclusion.  Turkey has been very active in international co-operation and has become an important energy corridor between east and west.  It has transposed many EU laws and regulations into its own national legislation and is in the process of synchronising its electricity network with the European grid.  It has also ratified the Framework Convention on Climate Change and is developing a climate change strategy.  But it needs to focus more on energy supply and conservation, do more to evaluate the cost effectiveness of its policies, and better co-ordinate policies across various government bodies.
