TotalEnergies Presents Sustainable Energy Transition Goals at ICCI 2023

The 27th of the ICCI – International Energy and Environment Fair and Conference was held on 24-26 May at the Istanbul Expo Center. TotalEnergies became the Gold Sponsor of the largest international energy fair in Turkey and the nearby geography. TotalEnergies Renewable Energy Turkey Manager Ahmet Hatipoğlu made a presentation at the "Corporate Sustainability Strategies" session on the first day of the fair that brought the industry together.

In his presentation titled “TotalEnergies Sustainable Energy Transformation and Versatile Renewable Energy Policy”, Hatipoğlu stated that as a company, they are working to make energy more accessible, cleaner, more reliable and accessible to more people. Hatipoğlu said, “One of the most challenging tasks of the 21st century is to meet the increasing global demand for energy. On the other hand, making energy better is a multifaceted process. The most important is safety but the same zam"Reducing greenhouse gas emissions, evaluating and reducing the traces we leave in the environment are of great importance for improving access to more efficient and sustainable energy." Hatipoğlu emphasized that TotalEnergies' sustainability policy serves this purpose.

Reminding that as a company, they support the European Union's goal of being carbon neutral and commit to achieving net zero emissions by 2050 across global production activities and energy products, Hatipoğlu said, “We are expanding our activities to become a leading international player in the field of renewable energies. We are focused on renewable energy sources and low carbon fuels. We have a global target to increase our renewable energy installed power from 2025 GW to 17 GW by 35. In line with our 2050 vision, we will provide half of our energy production from renewable energy, 25 percent from low-carbon fuels (hydrogen, biogas and e-fuels), and the remaining 25 percent from oil and natural gas. Emissions resulting from these activities; we will completely zero in on carbon conversion, carbon capture and carbon offset. We will also achieve a 2050% or more reduction in the average carbon intensity of energy products used by our customers around the world by 60.”

Noting that the investment to be made in renewable energy resources will reach 10 billion dollars in 60 years, Hatipoğlu said that they are working on wind and solar energy investments in Turkey, and continued: “We have survived a global pandemic a short time ago. Considering the challenges affecting the whole world such as the Russia-Ukraine war and climate change, the importance of renewable energy sources is increasing day by day. In addition to being environmentally friendly, renewable energy technologies in Turkey are also seen as a profitable investment tool, an important factor contributing to energy security, and an industrial sector with the existing equipment production infrastructure. Our priority is to realize large-scale investments in Turkey that are in line with our company's policies and offer more stable returns in the long run.”

Hatipoğlu explained that they have further reduced emissions related to oil production and use by preventing greenhouse gas emissions into the atmosphere, making their facilities more efficient, and developing fuels such as low-carbon fuels and sustainable aviation fuel. Hatipoğlu said, “We continue to develop new products in cooperation with renewable energy producers. We have oils that will protect manufacturers' equipment and offer energy savings and longevity. On the other hand, Excellium Racing 100, the 100 percent renewable fuel we developed for motorsport racing, is a racing fuel that meets all the requirements of the FIA, vehicle manufacturers, pilots and European directives (RED) on renewable energies. The Excellium Racing 100, which does not contain petroleum, provides at least a 65 percent reduction in carbon dioxide emissions throughout its lifetime.”
