A recent study says that the combination between the energy produced by Turkey and Egypt could generate enough electricity to supply 700,000 homes and renewable fuels to replace more than 2 million metric tons of oil each year.
To reduce the dependency and decrease the budget deficit, Turkey has adopted ambitious targets including raising the share of renewable energy from a level of 13.5 percent in 2013 to 20,5 percent in 2023. The study shows that more than 25 million tonns of crop residues and 150 million metric of livestock residues from cattle buffalo and layer chickens could generate more than 1 GW of electricity. Cotton stalk residues in particular have enormous potential.
The Egypt estimated availability of 5 million metric tons of crop residues and 14 million metric tons of livestock residues could unlock an energy potential of more than 750 MW. For this reason the emissions could be reduced by 6,5 million metric tons of CO2 equivalent annually.
