The world energy politics affects civil engineering as well as all other sectors. Especially, minimum energy consumption and the use of renewable energy are gaining popularity. In accordance with this objective, design and application of civil engineering is also continuously developing. Just as the world, the implementation of civil engineering should be observed in the direction of national energy policies in our country. Pile foundation is used when the modern high structures’ subsoil bearing capacity inadequate. Energy piles are pile foundation systems that are constructed by integrating collector lines to take advantage of geothermal energy. Energy piles are used for both heating and cooling purposes. In this study, a model study on energy piles, one of the most beautiful examples of renewable energy applications, was performed. Possible benefits were discussed in the case of a sample pile foundation project if design as energy piles in Eskişehir soil conditions.
