As an OECD member with fast growing economy and population, Turkey's energy demand has been increasing. However Turkey's current energy profile mostly depends on imported fossil fuel resulting in an unsustainable development while keeping away Turkey from COP21 targets. By the given motivation, renewable energy sources of Turkey are analyzed in an economic and technical frame for a 100% sustainable energy system for Turkey. Utilization of all the available renewable energy sources and its feasibility is analyzed and discussed. Moreover for that sustainable energy approach, the role and the amount of the available sustainable biomass potential of Turkey along with the sustainability indicators is discussed. The results clearly indicated that a 100% sustainable energy system for Turkey is possible for the year 2030 and 2050 within a 49-54 €/MWhel cost range.
