Turkey: the contribution of the Clean Technology Fund to energy efficiency goals

Case/country study

Written by Neil Bird

Case/country study

This case study describes the progress that has been made in transforming the energy sector in Turkey, with support from the Climate Investment Funds (CIF).

The first part details the investments made by CIF’s Clean Technology Fund (CTF) to advance the uptake of energy efficiency (EE) and renewable energy (RE) technologies in the country. The second part documents the changes that have occurred in the energy sector, with a focus on the gains made in EE, using a framework developed by CIF consisting of five dimensions of transformational change.

The case study considers the changes brought about by the CIF-supported investments in Turkey through five dimensions of transformational change: Relevance, Systemic Change, Speed, Scale, and Adaptive Sustainability. Overall, based on available evidence from the CTF EE investments in Turkey, advanced signals of change in the Relevance, Systemic Change, Speed, and Scale dimensions are apparent, with strong emerging signals in the Adaptive Sustainability dimension.
