The rapid increase in energy demand and consumption has intensified the necessity of developing new methods to ensure energy efficiency. When heating, cooling, lighting and other equipments in buildings are accounting for 24% of total energy consumption, it is inevitable to take more initiatives to reduce energy consumption in the construction sector. New residential areas cannot anymore be the places, where natural resources are consumed recklessly. They should be designed as livable areas, where preserving and using natural resources is possible. In recent years, a national urbanization and housing development process has begun in Turkey and with the new legal regulations, Housing Development Administration of Turkey (TOKI) has been put in charge and authorized extensively to administer this process. To construct sustainable residential areas and optimize energy demand, the participation of such leading institutions in housing development and development of energy efficiency strategies are essential. In this context, the aim of this study is to analyze housing development projects of TOKI in terms of energy efficiency. More specifically, using the energy efficiency criteria of the site environment data, technical and technological developments, and building design and construction, it assesses the selected housing projects of TOKI in different geographies of Turkey. In the light of the findings, the paper proposes new principles to adapt energy efficiency methods in housing development projects.


Kentsel Ulaşım Sektöründe Enerji Verimliliği: Uluslararası Bir Karşılaştırma
Yetişkul, Emine; Şenbil, Metin (Middle East Technical University, Faculty of Architecture, 2010-6-15)
Kentsel ulaşım, enerji tüketiminin giderek artan bir öğesidir. Arabalaşma, kentsel yayılma ve yetersiz toplu taşıma, enerji tüketimini artırmanın yanında enerji verimliliğini de olumsuz etkilemektedir. Bu çalışmada kentsel ulaşımda enerji verimliliğine etki eden faktörleri, dünyanın değişik bölgelerindeki 75 kente ait veriler ile Stokastik Sınır Regresyon Modeli kullanarak belirlemeye çalıştık. Genel olarak kentsel yoğunluk hem özel ulaşımda hem de toplu taşımada enerji verimliliğini artırmaktadır. Ayrıca, ...
Energy efficiency and rebound effect for household gas consumption: evidence from Ankara
Yılmaz, Zehra İlknur; Sarı, Ramazan; Department of Earth System Science (2019)
Increasing energy demand and concerns about energy security and climate change have led to energy efficiency to become one of the important energy policy objectives in many countries. It is conceived that energy efficiency improvements will decrease energy consumption and CO2 emissions. However, actual efficiency savings are often less than projected savings because of consumer behavior. This concept is known as the rebound effect which is an important factor to be considered while estimating results of ene...
Comminution: Technology, Energy Efficiency and Innovation
Klein, B.; Altun, Naci Emre; Scoble, M. J. (2015-04-17)
With pressures to improve energy efficiency in mining, reducing energy usage in comminution has become the focus of innovation. Several advances have been made however the uptake of innovations and technologies is slow. A Technology Readiness Level guide has been developed for other industries that may be a useful tool for the mining industry. Examination of selected successful energy efficient technologies provides some insights and lessons that may provide direction for advancing new technologies. This pa...
Energy performance of smart buildings: simulating the impact of active systems and passive strategies
Tetik, Buğra; Elias Özkan, Soofia Tahira; Department of Building Science in Architecture (2014)
Energy efficiency is one of the most important attempts in the world because of various environmental, economical and developmental aspects of energy. In this context, energy performance of buildings has been a critical issue since buildings constitute approximately half of total energy consumption. The concept of smart building which has been attractive recently, contributes to the issue with smart technologies; while some passive design techniques which have been used throughout the history are still appl...
Energy efficiency perspectives of femtocells in internet of things: recent advances and challenges
Al-Turjman, Fadi M.; Imran, Muhammad; Bakhsh, Sheikh Tahir (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2017)
Energy efficiency is a growing concern in every aspect of the technology. Apart from maintaining profitability, energy efficiency means a decrease in the overall environmental effects, which is a serious concern in today's world. Using a femtocell in Internet of Things (IoT) can boost energy efficiency. To illustrate, femtocells can be used in smart homes, which is a subpart of the smart grid, as a communication mechanism in order to manage energy efficiency. Moreover, femtocells can be used in many IoT app...
