Boosting Effective and Sustainable Transformation for Energy

About The Project

Supported by the European Commission within the scope of the Competitive Sectors Program of the Ministry of Industry & Technology and carried out by the Izmir Development Agency (IZKA), BEST For Energy (Boosting Effective and Sustainable Transformation for Energy) Project, -with its approach of green growth- aims to develop a structure that will ensure the environment-focused sustainable economic development goals.

BEST For Energy Project, initiated in the third quarter of 2020, with the partnership of İzmir Development Agency (İZKA) and the Association of Energy Industrialists and Businessmen (ENSİA), aims to secure the production of clean energy equipment and environmental technologies in İzmir and its surroundings and to develop a competitive cluster in the sector. It aims to increase the added value and to transform İzmir into a clean energy zone.

In a three-year-execution-period, through the capacity development programs, the project will focus on increasing the investment and export rates of the companies in the renewable/clean energy chain and to assist companies that are heading towards the sector. The project aims to ensure high-level regional competitiveness and strong cooperation among stakeholders.
