Your City, Your Energy!

Today, parallel to the increase in the world population, the rapid development in urbanization and industrialization increases the need for energy day by day. The limited natural resources from which we obtain energy necessitate energy diversity. As much as the importance of energy supply, protecting the environment and nature in the processes of obtaining these resources is a very important responsibility in terms of leaving a viable world to future generations. From this point of view, “environmental and nature friendly energy production policies” is one of the basic principles of our organization.

Established in 1962 as a subsidiary of the Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality, we are working with all our strength to become a strong and respected trade mark in the energy sector with the sensitivity of “a clean, green and viable Istanbul” as the most long established and experienced company in the industry. We are working with all our teams in a way that will keep all the beauties of our historical heritage Istanbul in parallel with scientific and technological developments, with our activities in 4 fields: energy, lighting, fuel management and fuel waste separation & recovery, with our effective and efficient investment programs that will increase energy independence.

Silivri Seymen Biomass Power Plant, which we put into service with 17 MW in September 2020 and reached a capacity of 37 MW as of October 2021, has the distinction of being the energy production facility with the highest installed capacity in a single center in Turkey. When the project is completed, it will be the world’s largest BES project installed in a single area with a capacity of 90 MW.

With our Climate Change Processes Management Office, which we took action as of June 2021, under the leadership of our Istanbul Metropolitan Mayor, Mr. Ekrem İmamoğlu, within the framework of the European Green Consensus and the C40 Big Cities Climate Leadership Group decisions, we are on the way to become a “Fair, Green and Creative Istanbul”. We are working towards the goal of being a “carbon neutral” and “resilient city” in Turkey.
