Rimantas Dapkus and Dalia Streimikiene
Abstract— Sustainable development is a key policy in European Union (EU). The main targets of EU energy policy are related with sustainable energy development goals. Therefore it is important to assess electricity generation technologies in terms of sustainability. The aim of this paper is to apply the multi–criteria decision support framework for sustainability assessment of the main electricity generation technologies in EU. The multi-criteria decision method MULTIMOORA was applied for the sustainability assessment of electricity generation technologies. The multi-criteria analysis conducted in the paper provided that the future energy policy in EU should be oriented towards the sustainable energy technologies are water and solar thermal ones.
