Turkey Introduces New Energy Efficiency Regulations For Buildings


Turkey introduces a new building regulation. Any building that occupies more than 2,000 square metres must be of the B energy efficiency class. These large buildings must consume 5% of their energy from renewable sources.


Turkey now has a 25% reduction in its energy consumption thanks to this regulation. It will also reduce Turkey’s import bill of energy by 5 billion Turkish Liras. Turkey currently depends heavily on imports from other countries to meet its energy needs.


The new regulation requires that all new structures must be Nearly Zero-Energy Buildings (NZEB). This means that authorities will deny permissions for construction projects that don’t follow the guidelines.


The National Energy Efficiency Action Plan 2017, which included 55 actions in six categories, was introduced by the country to reduce cumulative primary energy consumption by 14% between 2017-2023. This would result in a total primary energy saving of 277.9 TWh.
