In recent years, with the development of shallow geothermal energy, problems such as waste of groundwater resources and low energy saving efficiency have gradually emerged. Therefore, it is necessary to partition the utilization of shallow geothermal energy appropriately. In order to solve the problem that the evaluation indexes of the suitable partition of coupling utilization of shallow geothermal energy and active energy are multi-level, multi-objective and difficult to quantify, this paper discusses the feasibility of evaluating the suitability partition by using the combination method of analytic hierarchy process and entropy weight method. This method ensures the rationality and accuracy of weight assignment. Based on this method, the suitable partition model of shallow geothermal energy and active energy coupling utilization in Shenyang area is established. It can be concluded that this method has a certain extension value and can provide the basis and support for scientific zoning and rational development of the suitability of coupling utilization of shallow geothermal energy with active energy.
