CO2 emissions are steadily increasing rapidly in Turkey. Developing strategies to reduce CO2 emissions in our country, which is a party to the Kyoto Protocol (KP) in 2009, has become extremely important. CO2 emissions caused by the energy sector in Turkey is of the order of 90% and electricity demand is increasing by 7-8% every year. This study was selected thermal power plants in Turkey and emissions were investigated. The emissions of the plants separated as natural gas and coal were compared in terms of CO2, NOX, SO2 ratios. As a result of these investigations, CO2 emissions must be reduced, especially in the electricity generation sector. Many environmental technologies have been developed to reduce emissions. One of these is the Air Source Wind System. In this Air Source Wind System, electrical energy is generated using aerodynamic forces transferred from the aircraft to the ground by rope or pump kite. The energy conversion is achieved by a two-phase cycle consisting of a production phase in which electrical energy is produced and a recovery phase in which less energy is consumed. According to current estimates, installed power worldwide is estimated at 80 GW as of this year.
