Energy as an essential basis for the social development has a vital role for survival and development of humankind as an environmental factor. Energy consumption of Turkey has become an important problem through the exorbitant price increase in the fundamental energy source of the world and rapid development in the economy of Turkey. The necessity to create correct decision-making processes related to future in order to eliminate this problem has appeared as well. For that reason, views of decision-makers upon the relative importance of selection criteria were determined, using analytical hierarchy process (AHP) and technique for order preference by similarity to ideal solution (TOPSIS) based upon type-2 fuzzy sets (FSs) that were used in order to list the best energy alternatives.
