Turkish Household Electricity Consumption Structure: Electrical Appliances and Energy Efficiency


  • Işıl Şirin SELÇUK


Turkey’s electricity demand has been increasing following the trends of the world. One of the main elements making up this demand is the households which immediately follows the industrial sector in the consumption order. Investigating the electricity consumption trends of the electrical appliances, especially considering increased energy costs, energy security issues and environmental impacts of energy use, is important to implement more realistic and effective policies. Majority of electricity used in houses is consumed by electrical and electronic goods. For this purpose, households' electricity consumption tendencies were taken into consideration by using the household budget surveys of TURKSTAT and especially the use of electrical household appliances was examined because the households had an important place in electricity consumption. It is also thought that the findings of the article will help the future of energy policies.
