ENVIRONMENTAL FACTORS IN ENERGY PRODUCTION OF TURKEY
MUHAMMED ERNUR AKINER
The progress of technology, the increase of the population, increases the speed of energy demand, which is the thought of man to dominate the world. Every energy-generating species has a certain negative effect on the environment. Considering the conservation objective of nature, the Five-Year Development Plan of Turkey consists of the measures are to be taken to develop, disseminate, and take up the greater proportion of consumption in new and renewable energy sources. In order not to face serious problems, it is necessary to give importance to source diversity as soon as possible and to allocate sufficient resources for Research and Development studies to be encouraged to diversify resources, to accelerate the use of alternative energy sources, to encourage such studies. Efforts should be made to efficiently utilize the domestic resource potential in order to lower the percentage of external dependency in the use of energy resources, such activities should be supported, incentives should be given and storage opportunities should be increased. Considering the energy requirement, it is of great importance to prioritize the construction of renewable, nuclear and hydropower facilities in the direction of conservation-use balance, with the aim of not to enter the energy shortage and to minimize natural environmental destruction in the following years. Energy agriculture is an issue that has never been touched. Energy plants in our country should be started with C4 type plants. This study gives answers to what should be the possible energy policy that aims to combine environmental protection and uninterruptible power.
