IICEC (Istanbul International Center for Energy and Climate) Sabancı Üniversitesi Karaköy Minerva Palas Bankalar Caddesi No:2 Karaköy Istanbul / Turkey /sabanciu_iicec /sabanciuiicec VISION & MISSION Istanbul International Center for Energy and Climate (IICEC) is a future-oriented independent research and policy center designed to conduct objective, high-quality economic and policy studies in energy and climate. IICEC efforts will help the development of solutions to a sustainable energy future for the region and the world. Working with governments, partners from industry, international organizations, think tanks and other research bodies, establishing a network of cooperation with other universities in the region and in the world; IICEC aims to inform policy makers, industry, academics and opinion leaders on key energy challenges and provide them with objective and in-depth analysis. We foster the exchange and development of ideas by providing a distinguished platform gathering key stakeholders involved in energy and climate fields. The decision to form IICEC was motivated by the growing role of Turkey in the international energy landscape and the strategic position of Istanbul, where Europe and Asia meets. The Center, at Sabancı University Karaköy Minerva Palace in Istanbul, is located at the crossroads of almost all current and emerging energy players, both on the producing and consuming sides of global energy markets. Utilizing this strategic position, IICEC serves to fill the need for an international approach with international resources to the future of energy and climate topics, as a globally recognized networking center. CONTENTS EVENTS 2016 World Energy Outlook 2016 Turkey Presentation by Dr. Fatih Birol I 1 20 December 2016, Sabancı Center, Istanbul FOREWORD A continuous, safe, economical, and environmentally friendly supply of energy is one of the leading requirements for economic and social development, improvements in quality of life, and an increase in welfare. Recent technological and geostrategic changes in the energy business have become critical driving factors in the need to develop effective strategies that will lead to an economical and environmentally friendly way of meeting the world s energy requirements, and the building of a sustainable energy future. Based on this and inspired by Turkey s increasing role and importance in the global energy equation, we established the Istanbul International Center for Energy and Climate (IICEC) in a location where not only continents meet, but global energy focuses as well. The leading players in the energy business took part in IICEC, making it into a growing Community and an interactive platform for providing input to decision makers, empowering them to make timely and accurate assessments on issues related to energy and the environment. IICEC will continue to grow in the future, becoming a Polar Star that will lead energy into the future with high-quality, objective research and policy recommendations. IICEC International Energy Forums, annually organized by IICEC, bring together the leaders of the energy industry and top level representatives of international organizations, who direct their respective regional and global strategies with their ideas. The President of the Republic of Turkey, Abdullah Gül; Minister of Energy and Natural Resources of the Republic of Turkey, Taner Yıldız; Minister of Petroleum and Mineral Resources of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Ali Al-Naimi; Minister of the Environment of Republic of Poland, Maciej H. Grabowski; Special Advisor to Prime Minister of Japan, Eiichi Hasegawa and Energy Counselor of the US Secretary, Melanie Kenderdine were among the distinguished speakers of the Forum in the previous years; IICEC 4 th International Energy Forum Towards a New Global Energy Landscape: What Role for Turkey?, IICEC 5 th International Energy Forum Global Energy Investments: Challenges and Opportunities and IICEC 6 th International Energy Forum, On the Road to Antalya G-20 Summit: Global Energy Security Today and Tomorrow. These high level Forums, encompassing the development of policy recommendations on energy and climate received brilliant feedback accompanied by huge media coverage. I am confident that the visionary perspectives laid out at annual IICEC International Energy Forums, where the most important technical, economic, and geostrategic changes and Turkey s developing role in this context were extensively discussed, will make significant contributions to the efforts of decision makers, investors, and researchers in the field of energy.

International Energy Agency Executive Director and IICEC Honorary Chairman Dr. Fatih BİROL presented the World Energy Outlook 2016 report at the meeting. In her opening remarks, Güler SABANCI said, We witness highly influential global trends. Rapid urbanization, digitalization and electrification make energy even more vital. Energy has strategic importance for the quality of life in societies and the healthy functioning of economies. It continues to be a major priority. According to the World Energy Outlook, global energy demand is expected to increase by 30% until The most growth will occur in renewable energies. Forecasts suggest that the share of renewables in the production of electricity will increase from 23% to 37%. According to other calculations, an additional investment of 44 trillion dollars in today's prices will take place until A further 23 trillion dollars will be spent for improvements in energy efficiency. SABANCI continued: Energy is a strategic sector for our country. Our energy demand grew by 4% over the last decade, which is high above the global average. Despite this growth, energy consumption per capita is still at 40% of the OECD average. This points to an immense potential for growth in energy demand. Our main priority is to cater for this demand with reliable, competitive and sustainable means. We must manage energy supply and demand very well. Growth will be enabled by renewable energies. Güler SABANCI We are aware that the Ministry dedicates significant resources to this matter. We are enthusiastically supportive of their efforts. The energy sector in Turkey underwent great changes lately. 75 billion dollars were invested in the electricity sector in Turkey in the last 10 years. Most of these investments were made by private actors relying on the belief that the Turkish energy industry would grow and a competitive, liberal market would emerge. Current commitments are not enough to limit global temperature increase to below 2 C. Taking this down to 1.5 C is unimaginable at best. Dr. Fatih BiROL 1 THE FUTURE OF ENERGY 31 October 2016, Sabancı Center, Istanbul The electricity and natural gas sectors in Turkey overtook many other critical sectors with a combined market volume of TL 100 billion. Great steps were taken for the liberalization of our electricity market, led by the Ministry of Energy and the Energy Market Regulatory Authority. Following introductory remarks, International Energy Agency Executive Director and IICEC Honorary Chairman Dr. Fatih BİROL presented the World Energy Outlook 2016 report. Fatih BİROL said: In 2015 and 2016, approvals for new conventional crude oil projects have been at the lowest level since the 1950s. If this were to continue for another year, oil markets can face a new risk in the near future: lack of enough new projects. If this occurs, exceptional efforts will be needed to ensure that a great divide does not occur between supply and demand in a few years. If investments cannot recover or the growth in demand does not fall sharply, oil may enter another period of fluctuations. Coal had been the greatest contributor to energy in the last twenty-five years. However, coal consumption will fall considerably over the next 25 years. The largest growth will occur in renewable energy. Coal is still important. China accounts for half of the world's coal consumption. But it has been on the decline for the last two years. The reason for this is not climate change but air pollution and the health of people living in cities. Meanwhile, coal consumption in India and Southeast Asia are on the rise. Coal remains the cheapest means to produce electricity. It is a great luxury for people who do not have refrigerators at home to worry about possible climate change in This must be a consideration when fulfilling Paris commitments. The Paris Convention is a framework agreement, and its impact on energy will depend on how the objectives of the convention reflect on the actual policies of governments. While the world's need for energy grows, millions of people are still deprived of energy. In our main scenario, 30% growth in global energy demand until 2040 means an increase in the consumption of all current fuels; however, global totals mask important trends and significant changes in the fuel mix. Furthermore, hundreds of millions of people will still have no access to energy services by Sabancı University Istanbul International Center for Energy and Climate (IICEC) and Hello Tomorrow Turkey held an event entitled The Future of Energy at Sabancı Center on October 31, The high-level organization brought together leading innovators, science-entrepreneurs, corporate executives, investors and industry experts and the event was hosted by Prof. Ayşe KADIOĞLU, Acting President of Sabancı University. The opening remarks of the event were conducted respectively by Hello Tomorrow Turkey Ambassador Timur TOPALGÖKÇELİ; French Consul General to Istanbul Bertrand BUCHWALTER; President & Chair of the Board of Directors, TUSIAD Cansen BAŞARAN-SYMES; Executive Director of International Energy Agency (IEA) and Steering Committee Honorary Chairman of IICEC Dr. Fatih BİROL (via video); Deputy Minister of Science, Industry & Technology of the Republic of Turkey, Dr. Hasan Ali ÇELİK. We need two key factors to reach our goal in terms of economy and society. These are: entrepreneurship and innovativeness.he added Today we see that many companies which lead global economy were founded by very young people. A start-up firm with a small number of employees reaches billion dollar market value. Dr. Hasan Ali ÇELiK I believe that Turkey, with its young, dynamic and tech-savvy population as well as its entrepreneurial spirit and growing startup scene, is well positioned to play a leading role in this energy transformation. We are proud to see Turkey s start-up scene growing exponentially in the last couple of years. Cansen BASARAN-SYMES 2 3 Following the introductory remarks, the first Panel named Creating New Synergies Between Science-Entrepreneurs & Industry Leaders began under the moderation of Murat ÖZYEĞİN; President of Fiba Group and Didem ALTOP; Co-Founder & Managing Director of Endeavor Turkey.
