Renewable energy is one of the sustainable energy sources, the use of which has increased considerably in the recent years. Today, the wind energy is an essential renewable energy source that does not have a depletion problem. In this work, electricity generation from the wind energy and installed power capacity in Turkey is examined. First, the dataset of electrical energy production (GWh) and the installed power capacity (MW) between 2010 and 2019 are used. Then the electrical energy generation and installed power capacity are evaluated by the trend analysis. Different models are used in the trend analysis, and the results obtained from these models are evaluated with MAPE, MAD, and MSD. Finally, the most suitable models for electric power generation and installed power capacity are determined by evaluating the results.
