      Energy demand has quickly increased in Turkey and World because of growing of

the 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


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 the

data 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 of

production and consumption of fossil and renewable energy resources in the world and

      Turkey are analyzed. In the second chapter, projections of total electricity energy and

hydroelectric 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 results

are 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 Turkey’s hydroelectric potential of its future

      total demand is also studied. In the fifth chapter, conclusions of this study are given. In the

sixth and seventh chapters, recommendations and literatures are presented.

      In this study, it is concluded that total electricity and hydroelectric energy

productions for the world, European Union, and Turkey will increase, but ratio of

      hydroelectric energy production within total electricity energy generation will decrease. It

is also determined that, the ratio of hydroelectric production to total electric energy in

      Turkey will be larger than that of World and European Union.
