Abstract

This paper presents a methodology and results of ranking renewable energy (RE) alternatives using analytic hierarchy process (AHP) based on several important criteria, for energy problem in an island in Oman. The unique aspect of this study is that the economic ranking of the RE alternatives is done analytically, using actual existing load and generation data, and, wind and solar data, for the selected site using HOMER software. This economic ranking of alternatives is then combined with the subjective judgments of respondents' opinions on alternatives' rankings with respect to other criteria beside economics. The evaluation and final prioritization of RE alternatives is accomplished with the aid of AHP software, Expert Choice. The paper also presents the sensitivity of ranking of alternatives with respect to criteria weights.
