CoBenefits in Turkey

Based on capacity needs assessments, bilateral meetings with stakeholders and cobenefits council workshop conducted in 2017, political priorities and co-benefits were identified by major political stakeholders and leading research institutions for Turkey:

  • Co-benefit 1: Energy supply security: Domestic renewable energy generation as opportunity for energy independence and reconciling the import / export balance
  • Co-benefit 2: Local economic prosperity and sustainable employment with RE: Employment generation induced by renewables + skills and education needed (employment opportunities)
  • Co-benefit 3: Renewable energy as opportunity for business and trade in Turkey (investment and innovation opportunities)
  • Co-benefit 4: Improving the local environment, air quality protecting the culture and increasing the quality of life of Turkish people with renewables

These will be explored in more detail in research projects by national knowledge partner in country specific co-benefits assessment reports.
