Among all these renewable energy resources, use of wind energy in Turkey is still not common in spite of its global popularity, especially in Europe. While having the highest potential to make use of wind power in Europe, Turkey has not been able make the necessary progress in this area yet. From the sustainable development point of view, it is highly critical for Turkey to utilize its wind energy generation potential. In the framework of sustainable development, which is Turkey's wind energy potential should be primarily assessed. Considering the fact that energy sources may be consumed away in the future, wind energy technologies in order to produce in the country, providing the necessary incentives to invest should be made attractive. Along with those encouragement applications both an industry depending on wind energy is formed and its usability becomes prevalent. In this study the importance of wind energy and investment incentives, with emphasis on the situation in Turkey is evaluated.
