A model for long-term global air quality prediction and development of efficient control strategies in Turkey

Kumbaroglu, GS
This paper presents an environmental model which differentiates fuel consumption by sectoral use and allows for the reduction of emissions by coupling different emission control technologies to energy conversion and end-use activities. The model can be coupled to any energy model for forecasting air pollutant emissions and developing efficient emission control strategies. An energy-economy module has been integrated into the model and an equilibrium solution for the three-component model is obtained by utility maximization. Effects of emission limits on energy activities and on macroeconomical variables are investigated by restricting total pollutant emissions to the standards of the European Community. Numerical results are presented in the form of long-term forecasts focusing on the pollutants SO2 and NOx. Emission control measures, implied from the model results, are discussed revealing an efficient emission control strategy. (C) 1997 Elsevier Science B.V.


A methodology for evaluating environmental co-benefits in the transport sector: application to the Delhi metro
Doll, Christopher N. H.; Balaban, Osman (Elsevier BV, 2013-11-01)
This paper presents a methodology to measure the environmental co-benefits of transport initiatives, defined here as carbon emissions in conjunction with local air pollution. An evaluation tool was developed and then tested on the case of the Delhi metro. The metro is an extensive rail project spanning the Indian capital, which is also the world's first rail based Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) project. However, it has also been a flashpoint in urban policy-making in the city in recent years. This analys...
A Policy design model for market formation of solar and wind electricity generation in Turkey
Erden Topal, Yelda; Erdil, Erkan; Department of Science and Technology Policy Studies (2016)
The aim of this study is to design technology policies for diffusion of solar and wind electricity generation technologies by analyzing the market formation dynamics from the perspective of key actors in the framework of technological innovation system approach. For this purpose, qualitative data is collected through 57 face-to-face semi-structured interviews with the key actors from private and non-private sectors who are engaged in economic activities of electricity generation, regulation of the market, c...
An investigation of optimum PV and wind energy system capacities for alternate short and long-term energy storage sizing methodologies
Al-Ghussain, Loiy; Taylan, Onur; Baker, Derek Keıth (Wiley, 2019-01-01)
The goal of this study is to find the optimal sizes of renewable energy systems (RES) based on photovoltaic (PV) and/or wind systems for three energy storage system (ESS) scenarios in a micro-grid; (1) with pumped hydro storage (PHS) as a long-term ESS, (2) with batteries as a short-term ESS, and (3) without ESS. The PV and wind sizes are optimally determined to accomplish the maximum annual RES fraction (F-RES) with electricity cost lower than or equal to the utility tariff. Furthermore, the effect of the ...
Implementation of horizontal well CBM/ECBM technology and the assessment of effective CO2 storage capacity in a Scottish coalfield
Sınayuç, Çağlar; Imrie, Claire E.; Syed, S. Amer; Korre, Anna; Durucan, Sevket (Elsevier BV, 2011-01-01)
In this study the theoretical and effective methane recovery and CO2 storage potential of four coal seams within a well characterised section of a CBM license in Scotland are estimated, considering different horizontal well patterns, the effect of permeability heterogeneity and the composition of the injected fluid. The study concerns the Airth area of the Clackmannan coalfield in the Scottish Midland Valley. The effort on building the static earth model and the history match results of the pre-existing ver...
Erkan, Esengül; Senol Balaban, Meltem; Department of Urban Policy Planning and Local Governments (2022-1-27)
The thesis examines the applications of renewable energy towards community energy as an urban policy in the local governments of Turkey. A comprehensive study was conducted on the energy production and consumption from renewable energy in the world and in Turkey, and the increase in global renewable energy activities in recent years was discussed together with issues such as climate crisis and localization. In the discussions on political, administrative, and financial decentralization and privatization pol...
