Enerjisa Enerji is predicting that smart and sustainable energy distribution will be the key enabler for climate friendly and green societies, and that cities must get ahead of the trend to build smarter energy grids.

The old way of making and selling electricity is for a few large power stations to burn fuel as part of the production process, and then deliver it in one direction through the grid to customers.

But, according to Dr Michael Moser, CFO at Enerjisa Enerji, sustainable energy means a lot more than simply switching out gas or coal-fired power stations for cleaner alternatives; the new approach to energy is to fundamentally rethink the entire system.

‘The new energy world is the new energy landscape,’ says Dr Moser. ‘Sustainability is an integrated part of our business model to produce and distribute cleaner, smarter, and more sustainable energy.’

‘We see that the energy landscape, as well as the whole world are transforming on the back of 5 global mega trends; Decarbonization, Deregulation, Decentralization, Digitalization, and Urbanization’, says Dr Moser.

‘It is changing our energy world, as a new energy world is emerging, where energy is being produced more locally, on a smaller scale and at the time it is needed. And most importantly not on the expense of the world’s resources but thanks to it; sustainably.’

The key points affecting how the future of energy will look are related to the move towards decentralised power production, and how digital technologies will be brought in to play a crucial role in how that energy is used and distributed.

Dr Moser says that the road to the future is already being built: ‘Look at trends to build the right foundations for the future. The future is sustainable, digital, and decentralised.’ The current bottleneck, according to Dr Moser, for accelerating sustainable and clean energy is the lack of smart energy grids that can handle the distribution and balancing of new, renewable energy sources. ‘The backbone of the new energy world will be the energy grids which are already undergoing changes. One-way traffic from supplier to customer will no longer be the norm. As energy production becomes more local, such as with solar panels on the roof of an apartment building, energy grids will be smart interconnectors of complex energy flows.’

Solar energy makes particular sense in a country like Turkey, where Enerjisa Enerji is headquartered, due to the prevalence of bright and sun-filled days. The company’s approach goes beyond replacing coal with sunshine: Enerjisa Enerji is reimagining the distribution of energy to make it more convenient for customers and insists that electric vehicles are an important part of the whole picture.

‘E Mobility is a growing trend,’ says Dr Moser. ‘We have put EV solutions and charging stations in 185 locations and have ambitious plans to build that number significantly. Today’s customers require smart solutions that are easy to use, so we are making green and energy solutions the only ’

The approach is working, as the company is adding some 400,000 new customers to the grid every year. And, over the last 10 years, between 40 and 50 Turkish lira has been invested in building out or upgrading the grid in response to this new way of working. An investment level well above any other energy distribution company in the country.

The energy companies of the future model, the new energy world, will need to adapt to a sustainable business model or become obsolete. As Dr Moser says: ‘We are convinced that companies that do good will be the winners in the long run. And at Enerjisa we work rigorously to deliver our customers with cleaner and smarter energy that can be steered by devices to make life as easy as possible. And so far it has been a rewarding strategy for our employees, customers and shareholders.
