SHURA Energy Transition Center contributes to decarbonisation of the energy sector via an innovative energy transition platform. It caters to the need for a sustainable and broadly recognised platform for discussions on policy, technological, and economic aspects of the Turkey’s energy sector. SHURA’s mission is to support the debate on transition to a low-carbon Turkey’s energy system through energy efficiency and renewable energy by fact-based analysis and best available data. Taking into account all relevant perspectives by a multitude of stakeholders, the center contributes to an enhanced understanding of the economic potential, technical feasibility and the relevant policy tools for this transition. SHURA Energy Transition Center is founded by Stichting European Climate Foundation (ECF), Agora Energiewende and Sabancı University (SU) Istanbul Policy Center (IPC).
In line with this mission, SHURA provides a wide range of knowledge products and services to the Turkish energy community through thematic work clusters of policy, economics, technology and strategic partnership and dialogue across all sectors of the energy system, power, heating and cooling and transport.
