Ethem Genim Explained the "Energy Efficient Transport"
ETHEM GENİM EXPLAINED THE “ENERGY EFFICIENT TRANSPORT”
On the last day of the 6th Energy Efficiency Forum and Fair, organized by the Ministry of Energy and Natural Resources within the contaxt of the 34th Energy Efficiency Week, Ethem Genim, the face of the “Energy Efficient Transport Project” from the “Energy Team” met with visitors. Ethem Genim was available at the Energy Efficiency Association stand area in the fair organized in İstanbul WOW Comvention Center and gave information to visitors about the project.
“Ethem Genim”, a racing driver, face of the “Energy Efficient Transportation Project” was available at the Energy Efficiency Association stand on the last day of the 6th Energy Efficiency Forum and Fair and informed visitors about driving techniques to apply for the energy efficient transportation.
Genim, who explained to visitors of the Energy Efficiency Association stand that saving fuel would allow us to save money instead of wasting it and also warned students during the conversation to sit on the back seat of the car and to definitely wear safety belt.
In the transportation sector, which has 14% share in total energy consumption in our country, in the context of the project aiming to carry out tasks providing efficiency and to reduce the amount of energy consumed in this area, reducing the energy consumption of non-renewable fuels for motor vehicles, increasing the share of rail transportation in public transportation and freight transport, avoiding unnecessary fuel consumption in urban transport and reducing the level of harmful gas emissions released to nature are among the most important objectives.
In case of continuation of the growth trend within the last 25 years in Turkey, the present level of passenger traffic is estimated to be multiplied by about 3.3 (540 billion passengers/km), while the freight traffic is estimated to be multiplied by 2.5 (300 billion tons/km) and regarding this estimation of multiplication, the importance of the "Energy Efficient Transport Project" comes into prominence in the perspective of enhancing efforts for increasing energy efficiency in the transport sector.
