The measures employed to save energy vary in nature, and the decision maker is required to establish an optimal solution, taking into account multiple and usually competitive objectives such as energy consumption, financial costs, environmental performance, etc. In other words, the decision maker is facing the challenge to solve a multi-objective optimization problem, although the common practice usually employs other methods like simulation and multiple criteria decision analysis techniques that exploit possibly many but in any case limited alternative options. The multi-objective decision model, presented herein, aims to overcome this…
