As a country highly dependent on foreign fossil fuel sources, Turkey experiences many problems due to its increasing energy consumption in parallel with anincreasing population and rapid eco- nomic growth. Foreign fossil fuel dependency adversely affects the sustainable development of the country by hindering its economic development. Because of this, the renewable energy sources of the country should be evaluated and developed as soon as possible. The prioritization of the development of renewable energy sources to increase their contribution to electricity generation is a multi-criteria decision-making problem. Both energy and environmental goals need to be considered in selecting the most suitable renewable energy sources. In Turkey, current energy generation is not enough for the existing energy needs and in addition, electricity demand is expected to increase by 46 percent annually until 2023. Therefore, the government aims to increase the ratio of renewable energy resources (RES) in total installed capacity by 2023. In this study, it has been consider which renewable energy source; solar, biomass, geothermal, wind, or hydropower, have been given priority to increase its contribution to Turkeys electricity generation. In teh first part of this thesis, it has been examine the current situation of electricity as demand and power generation, the power market, Turkeys electricity transmission system and an outlook through the future has been discussed. In the second part, the approval process has been looked for licensed and unlicensed project ap- plications which has been renewed and supported in recent years due to new government guidelines. In the next part of the study, it has been examine clean, safe environmentally friendly energy sourses, whose usage is rapidly increasing globally, and it has been looked at the past, present, positive and negative aspects of solar, wind, biomass, hydrogen, geothermal and, hydroelectric en- ergy sources have been analyzed. Turkey has a big potential for renewable energy sources, and past and present use cases are discussed. In addition, renewable energy use and new and different application examples are included. In the last part of this thesis a short explanation of levelized cost of energy (LCOE) has been presented. For each renewable energy system, which are based in Turkey, a LCOE calculation has been made and the results has been discussed. All of these issues will be evaluated solely in terms of presenting an overview of the new growing sectors of energy production, and it has been also provide an overview of the development of energy transmission infrastructure in Turkey. In conclusion, it is thought that a variety of renewable energy sources will obtain their deserved share in total energy consumption by ensuring necessary economic growth in line with their potentials considering the negative externalities caused by fossil fuels and endorsement of economies of scale.
