“Energy efficiency is a visionary business”
BTSO Manager EVM Canpolat Çakal, “These racks were almost like a holiday gift to the industrialist in a sugar bowl before the holidays. Why is this so important, first of all, the limits of the grant have been determined. Companies falling within the scope of SMEs and companies consuming energy between 10 and 500 tonnes of oil equivalent (TEP). In other words, this support attracts 100,000 companies in our country. We must listen to them and take advantage of them. Our phones haven’t been quiet since the announcement of support. We, as BTSO EVM, are very happy with this situation. We have organized ourselves for this work and have been operating for 7 years. Energy efficiency is a visionary business. We are continuing these activities with the vision of BTSO Chairman of the Board, İbrahim Burkay. So we are in the right place. We have seen it,” he said.
“If it is between 10 and 500 TEP, we can benefit from subsidized aid “
Jackal“We are cashing our 12-month bill. I wonder if we are within the framework of this accompaniment or not to understand this. Suppose our total bill over 12 months, we wanted to receive this service from May. We go back 12 months from April. We collect our 12-month electricity consumption value in kilowatts. A consumption of 11,600 kilowatts corresponds to 1 TOE. However, we may also consume natural gas in our business. We must add the value of our natural gas consumption to this. There, 1,200 cubic meters of natural gas consumed make 1 TOE. We collect our consumption values over 12 months. if If it is between 10 and 500 TEP, we can benefit from these subsidies.. He has such an advantage. Of course, it’s a two-step program,” he said.
It is possible to save up to 60% in companies
BTSO EVM Director Canpolat Çakal concluded his remarks as follows:
“First, you need to be aware. We are in the same world, in the same boat, all together. In the last 30 years, we have lost 5 times the area of Turkish forests. Once the environment is lost. We therefore have no future to leave to our children. First of all, we must be aware of this. Right after that, efficiency and environmental activities became mandatory with the European Green Deal. Special attention should be paid to 2023. Companies with more than 1,000 TOE are required by law to have energy efficiency audits carried out and obtain an energy management system certificate by the end of 2023. Previously, SMEs, that is our SMEs, which is 99% of Turkey, complained a bit because they were below the limit of 500 TOE and there was no was no subsidy. Currently, there is support provided by the state for any industrial enterprise engaged in production. There is no institution that produces products that cannot receive support. When such an opportunity arises, it must be evaluated. We have done a lot of energy studies. We saw up to 60% savings and the average payback period is about 1 year.
