RACRER is Süleyman Demirel University’s Research and Application Centre for Renewable Energy Resources, Isparta/TURKEY.


RACRER was found in 2003 to determine the renewable energy potential firstly of this region Isparta and then the country. Then to develop technologies in order to take these energy resources into action is the main goal.

Isparta province and region, due to the Mediterranean climate zone, are very lucky in terms of renewable energy sources such as biomass and solar energy. Research for developing technologies to utilize the renewable energies of this region and all country is the main object of RACRER.
