Öz Energy demand of a country should be particularly supplied by indigenous energy sources; otherwise, the country would become an energy importing country and dependent on energy-rich countries. In order to benefit from the current renewable energy resources efficiently, many engineers who are specialized on energy management (economic, planning, organization and optimization) are strongly required to be educated with the support of today’s advance technology. In this context, various engineering disciplines associated with the concept of energy have been established in many universities around the world as well as in Turkey. In this study, Hybrid Optimization of Multiple Energy Resources (HOMER) software which is very useful for modeling renewable and conventional technologies in various energy management applications and also easy to use, is introduced in detail and presented to today’s and future’s energy engineers. In order to better understand how the HOMER is efficiently applied, a real-time application for Marmara University Technical Education Faculty which was discussed and is presented in detail.
