The increasing consumption of non-renewable energy sources such as oil and gas and reducing their reserves make it more necessary to pay attention to clean and renewable resources. In this situation, wind energy is known as one of the safest options for generating electrical energy. In this study, with the aim of evaluating the impact of climate change on the economic and environmental characteristics of wind turbines, numerical modeling was developed in MATLAB software. In order to evaluate the effects of the mentioned parameters as a case study, this numerical modeling for the parameters expressed in 4 cities of Iran, including Rasht, Tehran, Abadan, and Sanandaj, as the representatives of the main climates of Iran has been analyzed. According to the results of the economic point of view, which represents the Levelized cost of the energy production unit, Abadan was recognized as the most economical case with a   Levelized cost of  1.04 $ per kilowatt-hour of energy. Also, the environmental aspect of the analysis, which is based on the life cycle assessment method, considering the amount of carbon dioxide produced during the system life cycle and its pricing based on penalty policies, Rasht with a mild climate and emissions of 156 kg. Carbon dioxide per year and the lowest fine cost (annual cost $ 2.26) showed the most suitable option among other cities.
