All aspects of the national and international system for the exploration, transportation, production, distribution, and use of energy have effects on environmental both the supply of and the demand for energy must be discussed when exploring more environmentally sensitive options for the energy system.

Electric utility resource planning is the selection of power generation and energy efficiency (conservation) resources to meet customer demands for. The aim of the paper is to demonstrate the application of the MCDA framework developed to a generic hypothetical case and indicate how MCDA could support a decision on nuclear.

In the smart grid, large consumers can procure electricity energy from various power sources to meet their load demands. To maximize its profit, each large consumer needs to decide their energy procurement strategy under risks such as price fluctuations from the spot market and power quality issues.

In this study, we introduce a robust linear programming approach for water and environmental decision-making under uncertainty. This approach is of significant practical utility to decision makers for obtaining reliable and robust management decisions that are “immune” to the uncertainty attributable to data perturbations.
