M.Sc. Tezi Görüntüleme
Energy demand has quickly increased in Turkey and World because of growing ofthe population, industrialization, technological, social and economical developments. To
meet this increasing demand, Turkey and the other countries, which have water potential,give important into generation of hydroelectric energy, as a clean and renewable energy
source.In this study, status of energy resources in the world, European Union, and Turkey is
analyzed; production of total electricity and hydroelectric energy are predicted by using thedata from 1970 to 2004 for Turkey and from 1980 to 2004 for world and European Union.
The study comprises seven chapters. In the first chapter, potential and status ofproduction and consumption of fossil and renewable energy resources in the world and
Turkey are analyzed. In the second chapter, projections of total electricity energy andhydroelectric energy generation for the world, European Union, and Turkey are carried
out. In the third chapter, the results obtained from projections and trends of these resultsare given. In the fourth chapter, the ratios of hydroelectric energy generation for the world,
European Union, and Turkey within the total electricity energy generation is determined.In this chapter, probable meeting capacity of Turkeys hydroelectric potential of its future
total demand is also studied. In the fifth chapter, conclusions of this study are given. In thesixth and seventh chapters, recommendations and literatures are presented.
In this study, it is concluded that total electricity and hydroelectric energyproductions for the world, European Union, and Turkey will increase, but ratio of
hydroelectric energy production within total electricity energy generation will decrease. Itis also determined that, the ratio of hydroelectric production to total electric energy in
Turkey will be larger than that of World and European Union.Key Words: Energy Resources, Hydroelectric Energy, Electricity, Projection of
