“Zorlu Energy's support is very meaningful”
Emphasizing that Zorlu Energy's support is very meaningful to them, ITU Electric Vehicle Team Academic Advisor Dr. Instructor Member Derya Ahmet Kocabaş: “We try to be selective about our sponsors. We prefer to work with prestigious and industry-leading companies. Rather than the amount of support given to us, we focus on the benefits it provides to all parties, the collaborations it brings and what we can provide to our supporters. In this context, we find the support of Zorlu Energy, a pioneer in its sector, very meaningful. As part of Teknofest, we want to return with our golden achievements in return for the support of Zorlu Energy, our Gold Sponsor.”
“We are happy to represent Zorlu Energy, the value of our country”
Hale İlkçakın, a fourth-year student at the Department of Economics, from the ITU Solar Car (ARIBA) Team, said: “Zorlu Enerji is a company that not only focuses on renewable energy sources in our country, but also directs clean energy technologies, but also makes a name for itself around the world. The main backers of our strongest competitors in our global races are often their country's largest local energy companies. In this respect, we are very happy to have the opportunity to represent Zorlu Energy as the value of our country.”
