(Post edited on December 11 with WEF data on EAPI)
World Economic Forum released ‘the Global Energy Architecture Performance Index (EAPI) Report 2014’ on December 11th. The report introduces EAPI, which focuses on tracking specific and output-oriented indicators to measure the energy system of different countries. 18 indicators are aggregated into three baskets: Economic growth and development, environmental sustainability, energy access and security.
Turkey ranks 47th in the overall EAPI index out of 124 countries. Among the three sub-categories of EAPI, Turkey ranks the best in environmental sustainability and the worst in energy access and security.
In energy access and security, Turkey ranks much better in energy access; but it is one of the worst performers in energy security. Turkey’s high energy imports dependence, low diversification of import counterparts, and low diversity of total primary energy supply makes Turkey vulnerable in terms of energy security.
Among 1 developed and 14 emerging markets, Turkey ranks 10th in terms of electricity consumption per capita:
Eurostat calculates the energy intensity for EU-27 as well as Turkey. The energy intensity ratio is determined by dividing the gross inland consumption by the GDP. It measures the energy consumption of an economy and its overall energy efficiency. According to Eurostat’s figures, EU-27 was 1.43 (244/171) times more energy efficient than Turkey in 2000. The number improved to 1.33 in 2005 in favour of Turkey, only to deteriorate to 1.61 by 2011. In other words, improvement in Turkey’s energy efficiency is lagging behind that of EU-27.
Turkey ranks fourth when carbon emissions are compared to the size of GDP:
Turkey is the biggest fifth importer of natural gas in the world, importing 5.4% of the gas exported:
Turkey has the most expensive automotive diesel oil and unleaded premium, and second most expensive heavy oil for industry among the 33 selected countries:
