For energy experts the oil sources in the world except from Middle East end Khazar zone will be exhausted in the next 15 years. In this situation being dependent to outside by oil means that political,economical and ecological problems which focuses on energy’ll be the determinative component for world’s future. Most of the countries are looking out new ways for renewable energy sources like solar, geothermal, hydrogen, heave, biodiesel, wind energy. Between these alternatives wind energy and biodiesel are the most promising ones.The process of the energy problems and transforming them into oppotunities is valid for Turkey too. The aim of the study is to show the the problems due to the heavy usage of fossil fuel, and try to find out how these problems can be transformed into oppurtunities while using renewable energy sources general for world in special for Turkey.
