Dr. Emre Kiliç Represents UK-HyRES at Low-Carbon Hydrogen Dialogue In Turkey


Dr. Emre Kiliç attended a series of meetings and brainstorming sessions in Turkey. These high-level events were sponsored by the British Consulate, establishing collaboration between the UK and Turkey on hydrogen technologies.

Sessions started with brainstorming and discussions between UK and Turkish delegates hosted by the Ministry of Energy and Natural Resources. The attendees from the Turkish side were Botas (Petroleum Pipeline Co. and one of the biggest Energy/Pipeline suppliers in Turkey), TENMAK (Turkish Energy, Nuclear and Mineral Research Agency), and EPDK (Energy Market Regularity Authority Turkey).

This was followed by joint presentations in TUBITAK from UK delegates, academics and leading companies on hydrogen in Turkey. We had discussions with Tupras (Turkish Petroleum Company), Ford Otosan Turkey, who produced the first H2 ice trucks and cars ready to drive.

The second part of this event took place in TUBITAK Marmara Center in Istanbul, where the topics of hydrogen regulations, storage, safety, and economy were discussed. Dr. Kiliç said, “It was great to see the impressive TUBITAK research laboratories, hydrogen motors, and prototype hydrogen car produced by TUBITAK. We will keep in contact for future collaborations”.

Events concluded at Sabanci University with further presentations and discussions. Dr. Emre Kiliç will organise some meetings in the following weeks with Turkish colleagues and leading companies to continue the progress made.
