Turkey's geographical location ensures that the country has a very high potential of wind energy, which is around as 48,000 MW. This number is equivalent to 1.30% of the total surface area of the country. In accordance with the technological developments, the need for energy has been increased for the last few decades in Turkey. To cover this energy need, the studies have been directed to generate renewable energies and this effort also ensures the employment growth in the country, accordingly. In this academic work, the latest position of wind energy in Turkey has been dealt with including wind energy potentials, productions, wind energy utilizations, governmental incentives. Thusly, by preparing this study, it has been intended to give support to the improvements in renewable energy fields, to all production sectors, to the academic and industrial studies in Turkey.
