Renewable energy politics from the perspectives sustainability: Economy, ecology and energy

Fatih ŞEKER [1] , Çağrı AVAN [2] , Bahattin AYDINLI [3]


Many new concepts have been constructed by associating many familiar concepts such as tourism, energy, agriculture and development to the term of sustainability. Some of them are; sustainable development, sustainable agriculture and sustainable tourism etc. Undoubtedly, sustainability is mentioned in many areas such as media, politics, economics and academia. This concept is tried to be gained through the information and practices provided about sustainability to the individuals who make up the society. It is known that sustainability in science education is not evaluated with a holistic approach from the perspective of economy, ecology and energy. If it is assumed that individuals have not theoretical background and culture about sustainability, there can be thought that they will have problem for sustainable lifestyle. Therefore, it can be said that theoretical and practical studies which will help individuals are important in order to a more livable World. The purpose of this study is to construct broad a conceptual framework upon renewable energy policies from the sustainability perspective by linking the terms of economy, ecology and energy known in the literature as 3E. In the method of this research, firstly sustainability is examined from a holistic approach and was developed a model. Then starting from sustainability, socio-scientific issues, production, wastes, ecology, sociology, feminism, cultures, developmental differences, energy production, energy storage and transportation, the renewable ones, photosynthesis, biomass and pyrolysis are connected and interrelated in holistic manner by considering chemistry and politics. In the result of the research, it is arisen that conservative and elder women who is the ability to be happy while consuming less which must be followed and obeyed. By this way, new insights can be obtained and deduced for better inhabitable world peacefully.
