Does Total Energy Consumption and Share of Renewables in Energy Consumption Show Long Memory Under Sharp and Smooth Structural Changes?

Tanrıverdi, Saliha
Yıldırım Kasap, Dilem
This study aims to analyze the long memory properties of total energy consumption and share of clean energy (nuclear and renewables) in total energy consumption for ten IEA member countries over the period 1800-2008. Considering that changes in regulatory policies, implementation of new environmental laws, and potential market stabilities arising from some major events might result in structural breaks in the series, we employ a methodology that accounts for those breaks. In that sense, unlike the existing studies, our study allows for smooth and instant breaks together, intending to capture the correct functional form of the breaks since we are aware of the fact that the consequences of misspecification of the functional form of the breaks are as severe as those of ignoring the breaks. To account for the sign and size asymmetry of responses of the series, which might arise from the breakeven between adjustment costs and the burden of the shock, we further utilize Quantile Unit Root procedures. By considering all factors affecting the stochastic properties of the series, we aim to provide reliable inferences regarding the long memory property of total and clean energy consumption, which will help policy-makers to better design and drive their policy objectives.

Modeling Persistence Characteristics of Primary Energy Consumption from Renewable and Clean Resources: Considering Asymmetries and Structural Breaks
Tanrıverdi, Saliha; Yıldırım Kasap, Dilem (2022-10-17)
This study aims to analyze the persistence characteristics of share of renewables and clean energy (nuclear and renewables) in primary energy consumption for 5 countries, Austria, Brazil, New Zealand, Norway and Sweden over the period 1950-2020. The list of countries is selected based on their high level of primary energy consumption from renewables by 2020. We consider the importance of true specification of the deterministic components to better analyze the persistence properties. Changes in regulato...
A Feasibility study for external control on self-organized production of plasmonic enhancement interfaces for solar cells
Zolfaghari Borra, Mona; Bek, Alpan; Ünalan, Hüsnü Emrah; Department of Micro and Nanotechnology (2013)
The present study is about the improvement of the energy conversion efficiency of solar cells in which plasmonic light-trapping approach has been investigated. In this study, metal nanoparticles are allowed to form in a self-organized fashion on both flat and textured full scale monocrystalline silicon solar cell. These metal nanoparticles with strong optical interaction cross-sections at localized plasmonic resonance energies, improve coupling of the incoming light into the active area of solar cells by wa...
The relationship between carbon dioxide emissions, energy consumption, and GDP: A recent evidence from Pakistan
Mohiuddin, Obaidullah; Asumadu-Sarkodie, Samuel; Obaidullah, Madina (2016-01-01)
In this study an attempt was made to investigate carbon dioxide emissions, energy consumption (EC), GDP, and electricity production from oil, coal and natural gas, a recent evidence from Pakistan by employing a time series data spanning from 1971 to 2013. The study employed the vector error correction model to estimate the long-run equilibrium relationship. There was evidence of long-run equilibrium relationship running from EC, electricity production from coal, electricity production from natural gas, elec...
Ideal Feedstock and Fermentation Process Improvements for the Production of Lignocellulolytic Enzymes
Iram, Attia; Çekmecelioğlu, Deniz; Demirci, Ali (2021-01-01)
The usage of lignocellulosic biomass in energy production for biofuels and other value-added products can extensively decrease the carbon footprint of current and future energy sectors. However, the infrastructure in the processing of lignocellulosic biomass is not well-established as compared to the fossil fuel industry. One of the bottlenecks is the production of the lignocellulolytic enzymes. These enzymes are produced by different fungal and bacterial species for degradation of the lignocellulosic bioma...
Estimation of specific flow duration curves using basin characteristics of rivers in Eastern Blacksea Basin
Yılmaz, Deniz; Şorman, Ali Ünal; Department of Civil Engineering (2011)
New and renewable energy resources are important in view of reduction of greenhouse gasses causing climate change and in eliminating of dependence on foreign sources in energy respects. Within this context, hydraulic energy is evaluated as one of the prior energy resources that should be utilized. Turkey has 26 basins and Eastern Black Sea Basin is one of the most feasible basins with a lot of small hydroelectric power plants. In the other hand, there is not enough number of discharge gauging stations in th...
