ABSTRACT
In regard to the importance of energy, economies are today in search of new other alternatives than fossil fuels since fossil fuels are rare and unsustainable resources. Unlike fossil fuels, renewable energy sources are considered sustainable and clean energy sources. Renewable energy sources have become the foremost energy policy instruments of international companies since these sources are ecosystem friendly in a livable world and give less carbon emission than fossil fuels. The use of fossil fuels also causes climate change globally. Due to high carbon emission, the share of fossil fuels is remarkably high in the issue of global warming that is important for the future of societies. Apart from environmental effects, fossil fuels lead to external dependence on energy use and may restrict the movement of economies. The use of renewable energy sources such as wind, solar, hydraulics, biomass and geothermal can make economies independent of energy use. In the present study, we aim to reveal the renewable energy potentials and levels and areas of usage of these energy sources of some cities such as Çorum, Amasya, Samsun and Tokat, which are located in TR83 Region. In this context, we will make a comparative assessment and try to determine which energy sources are more suitable for which cities and are investable for relevant institutions.
