The aim of this chapter is to provide that hydroelectric energy production in

Sakarya and Eastern Black Sea Basins which are selected as pilot region in Turkey.

Hydroelectric energy has an important place in energy sector is generated from 26

main Basins in Turkey. Sakarya and Eastern Black Sea Basins are very important

water resource in Turkey. In this study, hydro energy potential for electricity

generating has been investigated in Turkey and hydro energy potential determined

for the selected small streams in the Sakarya and Eastern Black Sea Basins by using

hydro energy calculating methods.
