The investment in wind energy is very crucial to augment Turkeys domestic energy resources especially, Turkey must increase the share of wind in domestic energy resources. In order to achieve this goal, there are several requirements, such as identification of available potential, getting technological know-how, obtaining technical equipment, making policies and legal regulations, realizing domestic production, and supplying finance as well as duly managing them as a whole.This thesis is based on interviews with major wind energy companies. In these interviews, it is explained the factors preventing economic potential of wind energy in Türkiye and some other factors hindering wind energy deployment in Türkiye. The factors effecting wind energy in Türkiye are inflation, currency volatility, high interest rate, supply chain crisis, difficulty in financing wind energy, bureaucratic obstacles, incentive in Turkish Lira, low localization rate, high transaction cost, lack of institutions legal regulations, social acceptance problem, lack of transmission infrastructure, noise problem, land acquisition problem, lack of transportation infrastructure, lack of research and development activities, etc. In this thesis it is also realized review on wind energy cost parameters. Wind energy cost parameters can be categorized such as investment costs, operational and maintenance costs, capacity factor, turbine life span, etc. In this thesis, it is also made some policy recommendations to use wind energy more efficiently in our country.
