In today's rapidly changing world, we know that the energy issue will continue to remain on the agenda as a top-notthing issue. Especially today, when we look at foreign publications about energy, we are witnessing an incredible wealth of thought. For example, if you want to create In addition to oil, which until yesterday was considered the only source of energy in the world, there is now an increase in natural gas production. And when we say that the wind is next today, we look at it; The availability of solar energy is emergi
ng. Therefore, the production of energy; its use and distribution is one of the biggest issues that keeps a country afloat, no matter what angle we look at it today.
R&D studies on both production-oriented investments on energy and distribution of energy; today, all countries are wrapped in four hands as studies are coming before us. For example, it started in America in recent years; Then there is talk that Rock Gas, which started production in the UK and other developed countries, could play a very active role in the world energy wars in the coming years.
Rock Gas (Shale gas) is a new type of technology that includes blasting into rock formations with gas trapped in it 3-5 kilometers deep in the soil and then taking up the gas released.
Thanks to this new technology; We learn that the United States has produced approximately 200 billion cubic meters of rock gas in the last four years. And in this way, natural gas prices across the country are said to be at levels in 2002-2003. If we look at this figure, which corresponds to 14% of the total ENERGY production of the United States, we understand how important Rock Gas production is to a country.
Rock Gas in Our Country
When we look at our country, erzurum, Diyarbakır, Thrace region and konya such as research places; approximately 10 billion tons of reserves are mentioned. Do I need to know to say that these and similar energy sources must be well operated, especially in a country like ours, where it is mandatory to spend close to $60 billion a year on energy ion?
Especially in a country like us, where more energy is needed each year than the previous year, it is important to give the necessary importance to R&D studies that need to be done on energy resources in the context of both universities and private firms.
Now, by counting that we have energy, it is becoming important that this energy can be distributed in a balanced way within the city. Developed countries are now pursuing these projects. For example, when I look at the information I have received from the magazine MAGAZINE DEUTSCHLAND, which I am reading; in addition to these with various thermal and hydroelectric power plants, especially wind and solar power generation, which we think will be much more predominantly done in the future; energy from high-efficiency power plants powered by trees, gases or fossil fuels; storage of energy produced by independent houses and industrial enterprises with balanced distribution in the city; and then we learn that serious technical investments, such as redistrining, are being planned.
It is written that the supply and demand for electrical energy in the urban regulations called smart grids will have an important function such as balancing.
As a result, it seems that in the coming years, in addition to the diversity in energy production, electricity energy, especially oil; there is an area where it can engage urban governments, such as distribution to homes, businesses, industrial facilities and electric vehicles. As I often try to say, energy is something we know is a must for a modern life. Therefore, we understand that distribution is as important as its production, but I think it is now necessary to have energy as a whole in our current life, especially austerity measures, thinking that it is not too late.
