Some of the most fundamental agendas of the last century we are in is supply-side energy scarcity and energy supply security in the world. When the effect of emerging markets phenomenon is added to these energy insufficiency and security phenomena, the demand-side pressure on energy needs increases the severity of the need. These pressures drag especially the countries with insufficient energy sources into bottlenecks. Therefore, the energy problem is constantly kept on the agenda by different institutions of different countries, and solutions are sought by developing interdisciplinary approaches.
