Abstract: Wind data measured on Izmir Institute of Technology campus area have been used to evaluate the wind power potential on this location. Measured data set and its evaluation showed that Izmir Institute of Technology campus area has a considerable wind potential. Mean wind speeds have been found 7.03 m/s at 10 m height and 8.14 m/s at 30 m height. The prevailing wind direction has also been found as north direction. WAsP and WindPRO softwares have been used to evaluate the wind statistics and energy calculations. Wind turbines with 600 kW and 1500 kW nominal power have been fitted as the most efficient ones. Suitable sites were selected according to created average wind speed map and wind energy maps of campus area.Fourty seven 600 kW turbines with a total capacity of 28.2 MW and twenty six 1500kW turbines with a total capacity of 39 MW were located on the selected sites separately. The annual energy productions of the 600 kW and 1500 kW wind turbines have been calculated as respectively 100.3 GWh/year and 122.4 GWh/year.
