The most appropriate energy policy selection has great importance in terms of the countries’ sustainable development and environment. Therefore, finding the local, sustainable, environmentally-friendly and economic resources and the optimal distribution of them have become a necessity. In this study, a multi-objective mixed integer linear programming model which reflects the Turkey’s realities and necessities and optimizes the objectives of cost minimization, CO2 emission minimization, fossil resource usage minimization and social acceptance maximization simultaneously is proposed. This model is solved by minimum deviation method that is used for solving the multi-objective optimization problems by considering all the energy resources used for the electricity generation all over the world, and a 12-years electricity generation plan is obtained on resource basis for the purpose of meeting the total electricity demand expected to occur between the years of 2012-2023 in Turkey.
