ABSTRACT

Energy demand and consumption is one of the key factors of a country’s level of
development. They are not only related with economic development but also the
dimension of security and environment should be taken into account. Hence,
sustainability and resource diversity have overriding importance for the countries.

Turkey has a considerably high level of renewable energy resources that can be a part of
the total energy network in the country The optimum use of Turkey’s non-renewable
and renewable resources should receive attention in technological and economical
development of the country.

The study aims to determine new targets related to the potential of renewable and nonrenewable
energy sources in Turkey. In this direction a new classification which is
compatible with economy, technology and environment has been done to determine a
new energy policy. According to this classification, energy investment oriented items
have been determined. As a result, the necessity of new investments of renewable
energy sources in Turkey has been emphasized.

Keywords: Energy policy, renewable energy sources, unrenewable energy sources, energy technology
