Headline: Improving people’s health and unburdening the health system through renewable energy in Turkey. Assessing the co-benefits of decarbonising the power sector

This study assesses the impacts of fossil-fuel power plants in Turkey on people’s health. It quantifies the cobenefits of decarbonising Turkey’s power sector with renewable energy for unburdening Turkey’s health system, in terms of health cost savings and reduction in premature deaths. This research study has been carried out in the context of the COBENEFITS project, which assesses a range of socio-economic co-benefits of renewable energy, in addition to the benefits of reducing energy sector greenhouse gas emissions, when compared to conventional energy systems.
