CARBON EMISSION REDUCTION
It is considered that the reason of global warming and environmental changes is the temperature increase in the atmospheric and oceanographic temperatures due to greenhouse effect. The release of carbon gases such as carbon dioxide as a consequence of burning the fossil fuels is named as “carbon emission”. The accumulation of the carbon gases is preventing the escape of the reflected sun beams from the earth and this cause the world to warm up. Furthermore, this phenomena is causing
the pollution of the air, which is a major source of the health diseases.
The climate change causes extreme weather conditions such as floods and droughts, increase in sea levels, meltdown of the icebergs which results a life threatening risk to animals, plants and ecosystems as well as to the human life. In order to limit the global warming and lower the catastrophic effect of the climate change, scientists emphasize the necessity of clean and carbon free technologies. For a better world to live, green and clean energy plays an important role and has become a crucial energy resource.
The public awareness about the climate change, its destructive effects and proven results of balancing the carbon emission as a prevention strategy sets the importance of using the renewable energy for its carbon emission reducing nature.
As Bilgin Energy, with our five wind energy power plants and six hydroelectric power plants, we provide “zero carbon emission” energy from clean and renewable resources to replace the generation of energy from the fossil fuels and reduce about 1.700.000 tons of carbon emission each year to protect the environment and our world from the catastrophic effects of global warming and climate changes.
