Energy Saving! The importance of energy continues to increase in our lives, while fossil resources are running out on the one hand, while on the other hand the prices of energy sources, especially those linked to fossil fuels, fluctuate constantly with various speculations or depending on the conjunctivitis.
To save on the use of electrical energy;
- Building insulation,
- Selection of lighting products, usage shapes and times,
- Energy class and usage of electrical appliances
- It is important to be careful about regulating the use of electricity according to the time zones during the day.
The methods of saving in industrial subscribers include slightly more differences, so if we do a sample study of electricity consumption in housing;
According to 2010 data, 27,400,382 ams subscribers in our country consume 41,410,705 kwh of electricity in one year; consumes an average of 1,511 kwh of energy per dwelling, which is 125 kwh per dwelling per month.
When 5% electricity savings can be made through this consumption; 6.25 kwh per dning per month is an annual savings of 75.55 kwh. The economic cost of this consumption is;
2.00 TL per month is 24.00 TL per year.The amount saved annually on a site of 500 houses is TL 12,000.00.
With this money, if you want to build green space, if you want to build a commemorative forest with permission from the relevant institutions, if you want to donate equipment that will make life easier for disabled citizens, whatever you do will ultimately be exemplary behavior.
Total Energy Consumption and Energy Savings Across the Country
If you can save 5% on total energy consumption across the country; In 2010, the total amount of electrical energy consumed in all sectors was 172,050,628 kwh. we can achieve an annual savings of 34.410.125 kwh, which in return for the sales value of 11.011.240 TL per year.
Distribution of electricity production in our country by sources in 2008,
- 49.74% Natural Gas
- 29.09% Coal
- 16.77% Hydraulics
- 3.79% Oil
- 0.62% Other
first of all, by providing a great savings in the imported products that we use in electricity production; large amounts of foreign currency will be prevented from going abroad and this saved currency will be used in more efficient jobs as a country resource, as well as contribute to reducing the budget deficit.
As you can see, while it is only possible to achieve 11.011.240.Tl electricity energy in total across the country; it is important to work and show the value of a 5% savings that can be made in other energy sources that we are completely dependent on externally.
In our country, it is possible to make clearer assessments if institutions published the data in a timely way. However, since every institution like Cat tries to cover up its own knowledge, it is also not possible to get enough information served because data mining and data management in our country is not seen as a profession.
