Renewables to become accessible to all in Turkey with YEK-G System

Goals include expanding use of renewable power and consumption, and raising environmental awareness, says Dep. Energy Min.

Renewable energy will become accessible to all with the Renewable Energy Guarantees of Origin (YEK-G) System developed by Turkey’s energy exchange (EXIST) using blockchain technology.

The opening ceremony of the YEK-G System and the Organized YEK-G Market will be held on June 21. These initiatives will provide both large-scale organizations and individual consumers with proof of origin of power generated from renewable energy sources.

Turkey’s Deputy Energy and Natural Resources Minister, Abdullah Tancan, told Anadolu Agency in an exclusive interview that in recent years the governments around the world have been supporting more environmentally aware policies to encourage the use of renewable energy, reduce carbon emissions, and support investments in these energy resources.

“Today, 53% of our country’s installed power of approximately 98,000 megawatts consists of renewable resources, while 43% of our country’s electricity production in 2020 has been provided from renewable resources. We rank fifth in Europe and 12th in the world in terms of renewable electricity installed power,” he said.

To promote awareness of renewables as an increasingly important source of power in the country, EXIST commissioned the YEK-G System and the Organized YEK-G Market on June 1 to accredit the production and consumption of renewable energy resources.

“Our goals include expanding the use of electricity produced and consumed, creating a new source for our industry, raising environmental awareness and reminding ourselves that we have a responsibility to future generations,” he said.

The YEK-G System, in addition to documenting the use of renewable energy sources for electricity production and consumption at all stages in the sustainability reports of the power supply and distribution companies, will allow consumers to choose the source of energy they buy.

According to EXIST, participation in the system will be on a voluntary basis.

Each 1 megawatt-hour of renewable energy supplied to the network by the licensed generation facilities in the system will be recorded and documented.

Through the YEK-G renewable energy accreditation, in the form of an identity card, the energy of final consumers will show any renewable energy used.

Thanks to the YEK-G System, producers will be able to increase the use of renewable energy resources for electricity generation and consumption.

The system will ensure that supply and distribution companies will be able to verify renewable energy in their portfolio within the scope of their obligations.

Consumers, likewise, will be able to obtain information about the energy sources they purchase with the option to choose renewables to contribute to environmental protection.
