Multiple Criteria Analysis in Energy Planning and Policy Assessment
The explosive growth in the market price of energy (especially of oil) over the last decade or so has made the question of future energy supplies a major political issue in almost all countries of the world. Decisions concerning energy supply can have far-reaching consequences influencing, among other things, the quality of the environment, the state of the economy (balance of trade deficit, unemployment), the level of dependence on foreign energy sources, the standard of living of the population and the national distribution of costs and benefits. All of these factors should be considered in energy planning and policy assessment — the main objectives of this process are discussed in Section 2.
