Renewable energy is the energy generated from natural resources such as sunlight, wind, rain, tides and geothermal heat. Turkey has a great renewable energy potential with its natural resources such as biomass, geothermal, hydropower, solar, and wind. Selection among energy alternatives is a multicriteria decision-making problem with conflicting and interactive criteria. In this paper, the best energy alternative of Turkey is determined by taking into interactions among criteria by using Choquet integral methodology.
