Knowledge means making decisions and moving in that direction. I would also like to point out that EMRA is working to expand and diversify the scope of information to be shared. ”

Daşdemir: “We see the contribution of OTSP to the hub score.”

EMRA Natural Gas Market Department Head Hüseyin Daşdemir reminded that our country was in the 5-point band until 2018 for the hub score published by the European Federation of Energy Traders (EFET) and underlined that it increased to 9 points last year with the opening of the OTSP.

As EPİAŞ, we continued our efforts to provide uninterrupted service to our participants by taking all necessary measures and establishing the technological infrastructure. I would like to state that we did not experience any disruption in this process. We are proud to serve our country in the best way in this period by working with our Ministry, EPDK, TEİAŞ, BIST, BOTAŞ, TAKASBANK, public institutions, private sector and sector NGOs. “.

Our efforts are continuing at full speed to launch the Natural Gas Futures Market. We are planning to launch the VGP in the last quarter of 2021. In addition to this, we continue to work on the Renewable Energy Resource Guarantee (YEK-G) System. Thanks to this system, which will be put into operation in 2021, it will be documented and guaranteed that consumers will be able to obtain their consumption from renewable energy. The YEK-G System will also create the infrastructure for the Green Tariff (YETA) announced by our Ministry of Energy and Natural Resources. “.

“We will launch Transparency Platform 2.0 next year.”

Türkoğlu also touched upon the renewal efforts of the Transparency Platform. “Our business development efforts continue for the second version of the Transparency Platform, which reaches a significant user base.

We expect you to share your views and contributions about the project within the program flow. ” he said.
