Domestic energy supply and demand in southwest Asia and northern Africa—II. Energy supply and supply prospects

1989-1
Taşdemiroğlu, E.
This paper reviews the energy supply and supply prospects in developing countries, with particular emphasis on Egypt and Sudan in northern Africa, and Bangladesh, Indonesia, Jordan, Pakistan, Syrian A.R. and Yemen A.R. in southwest Asia. Existing energy supply patterns are described for both commercial and traditional energy sources. Particular reference is made to the disatrous consequences of increasing fuel wood demand. The potential for energy demand management and efficiency improvements is discussed and several specific measures are suggested. The prospects for energy supply are discussed in the context of several specific isues: the availability and price of commercial fuels, interfuel substitution options, future trends for traditional fuels, implications of the shift from traditional to commercial fuels and implications of the commercialization of traditional fuels.

Sustainable development of Turkey: Deployment of geothermal resources for carbon capture, utilization, and storage
Kirli, Mustafa Safa; Fahrioglu, Murat (Informa UK Limited, 2019-07-18)
As a developing country, Turkey's sustainable development objectives converge on robust and sustainable economic development. The increase in its energy and electricity demand is attributed to the growth of population, urbanization, and industrialization parallel to economic and social growth. Instead of fulfilling the obligation to protect the environment arising from international agreements and achieving desired sustainable development, the dependency on imported fossil fuel in electrical energy producti...
The potential and economic viability of solar photovoltaic power in Ghana
Asumadu-Sarkodie, Samuel; Owusu, Phebe Asantewaa (Informa UK Limited, 2016-01-01)
In this study, the potentiality and economic viability of solar photovoltaic (PV) in Ghana was assessed using RETScreen software. 5 MW of grid-connected solar PV power system using SunPower SPR-320E-WHT-D PV module can be harnessed from Navrongo, Bawku, Wa, Tema, Bolgatanga, Axim, Salaga, Kintampo, Kete Krachi, Tamale, Hohoe, Koforidua, Ejura, Takoradi, Bole, Sunyani, Bibiani, Cape coast, Prestea, and Akuse, which requires US$17,752,179 of investment capital and 25,313 m(2) of land for PV installation. The ...
Operation of a multistory solar building under adverse climatic conditions
Taşdemiroğlu, E (Elsevier BV, 1990-1)
Architectural, urban, thermal, economic and industrial aspects of a multistory solar building have been investigated when operating under adverse climatic conditions in Turkey. Active, passive and hybrid space heating systems which could be adapted to the building structure have been studied comparatively. The magnitudes of the design elements and the technical-economic results of the selected hybrid system have been determined. A domestic hot water installation has been also described
ENERGY PORTRAIT OF TURKEY - ACHIEVABLE SAVINGS THROUGH RENEWABLE ENERGIES AND CONSERVATION TECHNOLOGIES
TASDEMIROGLU, E (Informa UK Limited, 1993-07-01)
This article begins with a brief review of the socioeconomic situation, energy resources, and energy consumptions in Turkey. The estimates for the sustainability years of fossil fuels and the potential of renewable energies are given. Hydropower, biomass, geothermal, solar, wind, wave, sea currents, and salt gradient are, in order of priority, listed among the renewable energy resources of the country. The importance of energy conservation is discussed in conjunction with the research results produced for t...
