Our university contributes to the reduction of environmental pollution
Prof. Dr. Bedri Yüksel reminded that Istanbul Gelisim University (IGU) has ranked 100-200 among world universities in the Times Higher Education (THE) Impact Ranking 'Affordable and Clean Energy' category. Yüksel evaluated the ranking as a major success in terms of Turkey's image and said: "This evaluation also shows the contribution of our university to clean energy and reduction of environmental pollution on an international and national basis."
Stating that the ranking is an indicator of the studies carried out by the university and the importance given to the environment in the category of "Affordable and Clean Energy", Yüksel said: “As it is known, our country imports approximately 77 percent of its total energy consumption and the negative impact of this energy import on the country's economy is considerable. It is known that the sudden increases in world energy prices in the past, especially after 1970, caused major economic crises in our country and serious problems for our country. Our country spends billions of dollars on energy imports, which has a negative impact on our country's economy.”
"INDICATOR OF SUCCESSFUL ACTIVITIES"
Assessing the ranking as a major success in terms of Turkey's image, Prof. Dr. Bedri Yüksel
spoke: “The category measures universities' research on energy use and policies in relation to affordable and clean energy, and their commitment to promoting energy efficiency in wider communities. The place of Istanbul Gelisim University in the ranking is an indication of the recent successful studies of our university and it is an honor for us.”
"PRODUCTION INCREASES EXPONENTIALLY "
Stating that the measures taken by the state in recent years have increased the production and use of renewable clean energy resources, Prof. Dr. Yüksel spoke: “Electricity generation from energy sources such as hydraulic, wind, solar, geothermal and biogas, which are known as renewable energy sources, has increased exponentially and continues to increase with the incentives and laws enacted.”
"IT ALSO SHOWS ITS CONTRIBUTION TO REDUCING POLLUTION"
Saying that since renewable energy sources are also environmentally friendly, they also contribute to the reduction of environmental pollution, Prof. Dr. Yüksel stated: “This evaluation also shows the contribution of our university to the clean energy and reduction of environmental pollution on an international and national basis. It is an important achievement that our university ranks between 100 and 200 in the world university rankings with its studies on clean energy production, use and reduction of environmental pollution.”
