Executive Summary

The authors present Turkey's manufacturing-sector innovation data and, for the first time, analyze likely relationships among GDP growth, sectoral innovation intensities, energy consumptions, and energy-saving potentials. They detect a power-law-like relationship between the projected energy-saving potentials and realized energy consumptions of the manufacturing-sector groups. They observe that the energy consumptions of the sectors do not change significantly despite varying innovation levels during transitions from economic crisis and recovery periods. They conclude that the Turkey's manufacturing sectors' energy consumptions are insensitive to their innovation levels, or their innovation activities are not energy-efficient - and energy-saving-oriented, reflecting Turkey's past supply-oriented energy policy.
