Paper Title
Hydropower and Energy Strategy in Turkey

In recent years, the increasing demand for the security of supply both water and energy continues to drive hydropower development on a regional basis. Hydropower operators are seeing increased trans-boundary collaboration in the development and operation of hydropower projects, and in regional interconnections to enable the cross-border sale of the resulting electricity. It is well known that water is a vital resource that supports all forms of life on earth. Unfortunately, it is not evenly distributed by season or geographical region. Hydropower energy is a renewable, sustainable and clean energy in the other alternative energy sources. Moreover, it does not deprive future generations in terms of raw materials, or burdening them with pollutants or waste. This paper deals with energy strategy in the future.
