ABSTRACT
Istanbul is located in the northwest part of Turkey and has the greatest population of any city in the country. Istanbul and its surroundings were researched for wind potential. Energy production from wind was evaluated technically and economically in this study. Çorlu, Kumköy and Şile sites were examined. Other sites in the same region (Göztepe, Kireçburnu, Bahçeköy, Florya and Kartal) were also evaluated but the results were not satisfactory, and for this reason, these sites were not examined in this study. When we checked daily, monthly and yearly wind speed values and frequency distributions, the wind energy potential of Çorlu, Kumköy and Şile were greater than other sites. Çorlu, Kumköy and especially Şile's wind speed data are statistically decreasing. A Nordex N117 91m hub height wind turbine can produce 6099 MWh in Çorlu, 6459 MWh in Şile, 7265 MWh in Kumköy. A Nordex N117 140 m hub height wind turbine can produce 6471 MWh in Çorlu, 7439 MWh in Şile and 8175 MWh in Kumköy. The energy costs were calculated by the average of 36 years of wind measurement data using Nordex N117 turbines. Energy costs with Nordex N117 91 m and 140 m hub height in Çorlu, Şile and Kumköy are 0.025-0,027 US$/KWh, 0.022-0,025 US$/KWh, 0.020-0,023 US$/KWh, respectively.
