With worldwide developments stressing the security, economy, human well-beings and environmental costs of relying heavily on fossil and nuclear energy, the demand of safe renewable energy resources is expanding consistently and tremendously in recent years. With its safe and environmental characteristics, wind energy production has become one of the fastest growing renewable energy sources in the world. While new wind power capacity is being added in more places in various countries, the installation of wind turbines is an important process for long-term energy generation. In this study, an evaluation model, which incorporates multiple criteria decision making (MCDM) methods, including decision making trial and evaluation laboratory (DEMATEL) and fuzzy analytic network process (FANP), is developed to establish interactive relationships between criteria. Fuzzy Yager ranking method is used for deffuzification. The final ranking of the alternatives is obtained, and this can provide decision-makers for references.
