We interviewed the World Energy Council Turkish National Committee as akillisebekeler.com.
What Do You Know About Smart Grids?
Which Sections of Smart Grids Are You Interested In?
I follow developments in smart grids more theoretically and more abroad than practical.
Regarding smart grids
- Consumer side benefit-loss analysis
I am interested in topics.
About Future and Applicability of the Smart Grid in Turkey Feedback What?
I think this matter “if, it will be in Turkey?” it’s not a matter of time. Currently, system automations of TEİAŞ and distribution companies are the beginning and pioneers of this system.
On the other hand, it is useful to give an example: When the internet first started, some people said that there is already a phone, fax, what is the need for such an expensive technology. These days most of the phone and cell phone conversations are carried over the Internet in Turkey.
Smart grids are actually transforming Tesla’s networks from the communication and interaction aspects of the internet revolution. So we don’t have technology that we don’t have. It is just the technologies like Legos and the software and hardware that will interact with people in the right way, and so to pack.
In short, this process is inevitable, as I said at the beginning, it is a matter of time, maybe tomorrow will come, or maybe it will come 10 years after Europe like 3G networks, but it will come.
Turkey is not lacking in technological feasibility, there were asked to materials, software has improved, the distribution companies have a challenge, have a great desire in the meter manufacturer.
World Energy Council Turkish National Committee – Consumer Perspective
So where is the consumer, this is the most important point in questioning applicability. If the consumer will not benefit from this business, its applicability will be delayed until the systems-packages that it will utilize are brought together.
On the other hand, some of the regulations need to be completed. For example, I am not mistaken on consumer electricity meters to Turkey, the consumer will change To see just the color graphics display this counter? I am looking at applicability at this point.
Another important point is the integration of the items in our home with the network, which also includes the concepts of privacy and security, but I will not open this issue. Instead of underlining that Turkey has the EU’s largest white goods manufacturer I would.
As you know, household electrical appliances are one of the most important components of smart grids. If the EU makes progress on “network-friendly” devices that respond to price signals in the network, Turkish producers will have to comply, if they want to maintain their market share.
And I’m not mistaken Most Turkish producers, it does not separate for separate production of Turkey to the EU. So any developments related to the smart grid compatible devices in the EU, Turkey will also affect the market simultaneously.
In other words, apart from the distribution company-service company-consumer axis that we consider, Turkish household appliances manufacturers are also a part of this process. This is a further enhancing factor.
Can you talk about your company’s investment in smart grids?
My opinions are personal and I do not have any investment plans. But those who make an investment plan have to put consumer benefit right at the heart of this plan. Indeed, it should be clearly demonstrated what the consumer will gain from this transformation.
You Lastly Want To Add?
Thank you for doing such a work on smart grid and for wanting to insist on my humble personal opinions.
Working on smart grids in Turkey are very successful people and I see it as a chance for our country.
Therefore, if a process is to be defined, I am defending a roadmap where these values will be integrated into the process.
Finally, I would like to present an exemplary roadmap sketch to you and your readers:
- Making pilot projects
- Sharing pilot projects with the public
- Dissemination of the most successful projects
- Making arrangements
Thank you so much
