The knowledge of useful solar energy amount is important for designing solar energy systems. In this study, solar radiation exergy (SRE) values are calculated for the 81 cities in Turkey. The data are obtained from the General Directorate of Renewable Energy and the General Directorate of Meteorology. The approaches of Petela, Spanner and Jeter are used to calculate the exergy-to-energy ratios for determining the maximum utilisable solar radiation energy. The exergy-to-energy ratios, the SRE values, the locations having the highest solar exergy potential and the monthly, seasonal and annual total SRE maps are presented for Turkey. Finally, enviroeconomic analysis is performed and its results are presented. The available results are visualised via maps with colourbars.
