Aiming to reach a carbon-neutral economy by 2050, the energy sector is one of the industries in which the European Union (EU) carries out various studies.
Jak Eskinazi said, “If we want to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, we need to reduce greenhouse gas oscillations in the energy sector and we need to turn to renewable energy sources.”
“The Aegean Exporters’ Associations want the implementation of a similar comprehensive investment plan to support the sectors in the EU for the Green Deal in Turkey, paving the way for and supporting green investments, especially in energy,” Jak Eskinazi added.
Explaining that energy-related emissions constitute the largest share in carbon emissions, Aegean Exporters’ Associations Coordinator Chair Jak Eskinazi emphasizes that one of the main priority areas of the European Green Deal is energy.
Indicating that the European Commission first announced a strategy in February 2015, called the Energy Union, in line with potential future climate change policies, Jak Eskinazi concluded, “The EU, which wants to convert 32 percent of its energy resources to renewable energy in 2030, has put forward its roadmap with the Renewable Energy Directive. In addition, with the Electricity Markets Regulation, it is aimed to allocate a larger share to renewable energy in electricity markets and to establish an integrated energy market across the EU with the development of cross-border energy infrastructures. In addition to all these, it has also published the Building Energy Performance Directive to expand the energy performance of buildings. With administrative arrangements, member countries are expected to prepare a 10-year National Energy and Climate Plan between 2021-2030.”
