Abstract

Energy indicators for sustainable development which were introduced by the International Atomic Energy Agency in 2005 were used in this study to determine a renewable energy perspective for Turkey. The decision making includes social, economic, and environmental factors which affect each other resulting in a multi-criteria decision making problem. The problem is modeled integrating the technique of Analytic Network Process and TOPSIS. Also a sensitivity analysis is performed to monitor the influence of criteria weights on the model results.
