Speaking at the ceremony EGİAD Chairman of the Board of Directors Alp Avni Yelkenbiçer pointed out that resources are being depleted rapidly and energy saving is of great importance for a sustainable world, and said, “Energy saving is of great importance for all of us. As the energy deficit grew as a result of global warming, industrialization and increasing world population, energy resources were rapidly depleted accordingly. The Ukraine-Russia war also increased these costs. Everyone has great responsibilities to overcome the energy bottleneck and to use energy more efficiently. EGİADContinuity between periods is essential. We are very happy to repeat our energy checkup project, which was carried out in the 12th Term 2013”.
Emphasizing that the need for energy is increasing day by day, Yelkenbiçer pointed out that this increase is due to necessity and arbitrary use on the one hand, and said, “As a result, more energy use brings the risk of rapid depletion of resources, deterioration of the environment, and our country's dependence on foreign energy in terms of energy. Unfortunately, we see the negative effects of climate change in our daily lives. Energy efficiency is also one of the most important areas of coping with the global climate crisis. Preventing unnecessary energy consumption by using energy efficiently is an environmental action in itself. Likewise, it is a very effective method to reduce harmful gases that cause climate change. Therefore, although economic gains come to mind first because of the word efficiency, energy efficiency has a very strategic importance from an ecological point of view. In this sense, I think, this cooperation, which has been made suitable for the present in the light of new technologies and new legal regulations, is very valuable. I hope that all our sustainability efforts during this period will contribute to our members, our region and our country.”
Resources Are Depleted
Stating that there is a great need for the Energy Check-up Project, Yelkenbiçer said: “As energy resources are depleted, energy prices increase rapidly. Therefore, the importance and necessity of energy saving emerges as a concept that is better understood with each passing day. The “Energy Check-Up” project, which we created to reduce production costs and increase competitiveness, was realized for this purpose. In this context, by collaborating with Setaş Energy, an accredited company located in İzmir, we have initiated an important service where our members will not pay any price for more efficient energy use and savings. Within the scope of the project, energy check-up activities were carried out free of charge in the companies of our members, and there were serious increases in energy efficiency on a corporate basis.”
Competitiveness Will Increase
Sertaç Yılmaz, General Manager of Setaş Energy, pointed out that energy efficiency increases competitiveness and said,EGİAD With this project, it has put itself there as an association with high environmental awareness. It has proven once again that it is a sensitive non-governmental organization in this regard.
