30 November in BEC IN THE MEDIA

AA | 29 Kasım 2015 Mehmet Öğütçü Enerji dünyasının duayenlerinden The Bosphorus Energy Club başkanı Mehmet Öğütçü ile son gelişmeleri konuştuk. Eski diplomat, Uluslararası Enerji Ajansı yöneticisi, dünyanın en büyük doğal gaz şirketlerinden BG Group’un direktörü, halen de Global Resources Partnership şirketinin başkanı. Böyle bir kriz bekliyor muydunuz Ankara ile Moskova arasında? Rusya ile yaşamakta olduğumuz kriz, aslında beklenmedik şekilde, Moskova’nın Türkiye’nin sınırlarında denetimi ele geçirmek, Suriye ve Doğu Akdeniz üzerinde münhasır nüfuz alanı yaratma, bu çerçevede de Ankara’nın egemenlik haklarını ve sınırını koruma girişimlerini, uyarılarını dikkate almaması yüzünden patlak verdi. Benim beklediğim, Karadeniz, Hazar ve Kafkasya’da iki ülke arasında bir gerilimin patlak vermesiydi. Kırım,...

Türkiye’de Rüzgar Enerjisi Santrali Nasıl Kuruluyor?

25 November in ENERGY, ENERGY ACADEMY

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Rüzgar Enerjisi Dergisi | Mart - Nisan 2015, Sayı 3 Engin Deniz  Enerji Sistemleri Mühendisi Fosil yakıtların anlık tüketim hızı dünyada doğal fosil oluşum hızının 300.000 katına denk gelmektedir ki; bir günde bin yıllık oluşum tüketilmektedir. Ayrıca; hem çevreye zararları açı- sından, hem de yenilenebilir özelliğe sahip olmadığından alternatif enerji kaynakları araştırılmakta ve yaşam kalitesi yüksek olan ülkelerde temiz ve yenilenebilir enerji üretimi yollarına gidilmektedir. Araştırmalara göre CO2 emisyonunun üçte biri elektrik üretiminden kaynaklandığı için elektrik üretiminde yenilenebilir enerji kaynaklarına yönelmek bir zorunluluk olarak gözükmekte ve özellikle sayısı hızla artan rüzgar enerji santrali (RES) 20 yıl içerisinde dünya elektrik üretiminin %12’sini karşılayabileceği öngörülmektedir. Kısaca özetlersek; rüzgar türbinlerinden...

Egypt: The catalyst for a new eastern Mediterranean gas hub?

25 November in Uncategorized

Hürriyet Daily News |  November/25/2015 CONTRIBUTOR *Simone Tagliapietra/ **Georg Zachmann In recent years, the eastern Mediterranean has been a hot topic in international gas markets. Since the Tamar and Leviathan fields off the shore of Israel and the Aphrodite field off of Cyprus were discovered in 2009-2011, a number of export options have been discussed, including pipelines to Turkey or Greece and liquefied natural gas (LNG) plants in Cyprus, Israel and Egypt. Analysts have expressed hopes that the new gas discoveries might also pave the way for a new era of economic and political stability in the region. However, despite high expectations, progress has...

Turkey’s “Achilles Heel”: Tough Energy Security Choices

18 November in ENERGY ACADEMY, PUBLICATIONS & MEDIA

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]   Produced for GMF | 30 October 2014 By Mehmet Öğütçü[1]   Overview With energy prices declining, economic slowdown beginning, geopolitical tensions flaring up in Eurasia, the Middle East and East Asia, and investors taking a wait-and-see attitude, we are undoubtedly going through yet another tumultuous time in history that will likely have a bearing on energy security for both Turkey and the broader energy producing, transiting and consuming regions around it. In this changing world, Turkey is well positioned in flexing its political, military, economic and “soft power” muscles to potentially become a key regional force by virtue of its large energy market, regional trading hub position...

What the world needs to ensure energy security

18 November in ENERGY, ENERGY ACADEMY

World Economic Forum | Nov 4 2015 By Abdullah M. Al-Shehri and Julian Popov This article is published in collaboration with Project Syndicate. For decades, the international energy landscape has been relatively stable, with producers like Saudi Arabia, Iran, and Algeria selling oil and gas to consumers in the United States and Europe. In a few years, however, the energy terrain is likely to be unrecognizable, as dramatic technological, economic, and geopolitical changes reshape commercial relationships worldwide. What is needed is a new governance structure, one that moves beyond traditional bilateral relationships between producers and consumers. In a rapidly evolving world, guaranteeing energy security...
