Abstract: Drawing on the findings of a survey on Turkish citizens' energy preferences, the aim of this study is to propose policy recommendations on Turkey's energy policies. To realise this aim, this study analyzes the attitudes and behaviours of the citizens of Turkish Republic concerning their preferences on electrical energy generation. This article scrutinizes the preferences of citizens on nuclear power plants (NPPs) and renewable energy sources (RES)-based power plants. Moreover, taking into consideration the issues of global warming and climate change, the article provides a separate analysis of how recent developments in these two issues affect citizens' preferences on electrical energy generation.
