A multiobjective approach to energy environment planning problem

Arikan, Y
Kilic, C
The energy planning problem has gained a new dimension in view of the effects of energy production and consumption on environmental decline and ecological damage. The problem was usually formulated in total cost minimization form and the environmental effects of energy activities were not taken into account. It has been well understood now that decisions concerning energy supply cannot be based on a single objective, since energy policies have multiple consequences which cannot and should not be ignored. Therefore, with this new concern, efforts concentrated on developing energy environment models which recognize the multiobjective characteristics of the problem. In this study, we present the results of an attempt to find a suitable multiobjective approach to the solution of the problem using an integrated energy environment model for Turkey. Variations of weighting techniques employing Tchebycheff normalization procedures are used to produce the multiobjective optimal solutions. A number of results are presented for illustrating the energy policy and modeling issues.


A data-driven approach for predicting solar energy potential of buildings in urban fabric
Duran, Ayça; Gürsel Dino, İpek; Department of Architecture (2022-7)
Energy-efficient buildings that use clean and sustainable energy sources are urgently needed to reduce the environmental impact of buildings and mitigate climate change in cities. Buildings have great potential in harvesting solar energy by their solar exposure capacity. Developments in PV technologies also encourage the integration of PV systems into architectural applications. However, urban contexts can limit solar energy generation capacity of buildings by shading building envelopes and reducing availab...
A Model for Predicting Theoretical Process Energy Consumption of Rotational Parts Using STEP AP224 Features
Uluer, Muhtar Ural; Akkuş, Kadir; KILIÇ, SADIK ENGİN (2013-04-17)
Energy efficiency in manufacturing has become a key concern due to the increased awareness of the adverse effects of global warming. First step for increasing energy efficiency is to quantify the energy consumed for manufacturing processes. This study presents a prediction model for the theoretical energy that is consumed during the manufacturing processes of a rotational part and resulting CO2 release. Theoretical energy is the tool tip energy required to remove the given volume of chip. Prediction model i...
An experimental study on the CO2-CH4 swap process between gaseous CO2 and CH4 hydrate in porous media
Ors, Oytun; Sınayuç, Çağlar (Elsevier BV, 2014-07-01)
Recently, exhaustion of primary energy sources and increase in the atmospheric CO2 levels have become two major energy challenges of the world; therefore, utilization of alternative energy sources and avoiding the emission of greenhouse gases to the atmosphere are some of the serious problems of this century that should be addressed immediately. Many alternatives are being assessed to solve or at least to cease the negative effects of these issues.
An intertemporal and spatial network model for Turkish Energy System
Seyhan, Tolga Han; Güven, Yusuf Çağlar; Department of Industrial Engineering (2007)
Turkey, as a recent signatory to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) has to adopt policies to restrict greenhouse gas emissions at a time when energy demand is increasing rapidly. We report on an intertemporal, spatial network model representing the energy system that seeks to address the difficult trade-offs involved. We compute and optimal mix of fuels and technologies; considering efficiencies and investments in generation and transmission. The model allows analysis of emis...
An examination of the legislative framework for supporting the renewable tariffs
Akca, Alper; Sevaioğlu, Osman; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2008)
Sustainability and environmental concerns are critical issues in energy sector. Limited availability of fossil resources, environmental pollution caused by the greenhouse gases emitted as a result of fossil fuel usage and safety issues of nuclear power plants cause the seek of new resources in energy industry. Renewable energy sources emerge as the alternative energy resources for the industry. The unlimited availability of most of the renewable resources meets the sustainability needs in the energy sector....
