Renewable energy sources for the shift from fossil fuel have been considered as a solution to generate energy. In order to determine the optimal alternative for a specific region having more than one renewable energy sources prior to investment, Bozcaada Island is considered in this study. Two different renewable sources, wind and solar sources, are evaluated by life cycle assessment (LCA) methodology. For wind potential, operated onshore wind farm and proposed offshore wind farm are considered. A land based photovoltaic (PV) power plant are proposed to evaluate solar potential. “Cradle to grave” approach is applied for each case. The results of this study indicated that offshore wind farm is more advantageous than onshore wind farm in terms of environmental impacts apart from acidification potential (AP) whereas onshore wind technology is more beneficial than conventional photovoltaic (PV) system in terms of all selected impact categories.
