Abstract

The use of renewable energy is expanding rapidly due to a combination of market and political forces. Government regulations, consumer demand, economics, and environmental and sustainability concerns are all driving forces in the expanding renewable energy market. As a result of accelerated development and implementation in the past few years, renewable energy has emerged from niche markets to become a mainstream player in the energy market. While renewable energy sources have generally been thought of as more environmentally benign than conventional resources, not all applications of renewable energy should be considered sustainable. Renewable energy options include wind, solar, biomass, biogas, geothermal, and water energy(hydroelectric/ocean)The objective of this paper is to describe water resources development as a major renewable energy and its role in the current energy situation in Turkey. First section, provides a brief overview of the major renewable energy resources that have the potential for market development in the next decade. Second section, analyses water resources potential of Turkey. Third section, gives legislative and institutional aspects of water sector in the Turkish Constitution. Fourth section, analyses participatory irrigation management activities and present status of water resources in Turkey. Finally, will be discussing about participatory irrigation management activities in Turkey.First section, provides a brief overview of the major renewable energy resources that have the potential for market development in the next decade.
