Abstract

The rate of energy consumption is rapidly increasing in Turkey, in parallel to the population increase. Therefore, it is necessary to produce more energy; people are trying to develop and apply technologies that will enable them to use renewable energy sources. However, widespread using of renewable energy sources causes environmental problems that threaten human health and lead to disruption of the ecological balance with short and long-term effects.
