  author={Raffaele Carli and Mariagrazia Dotoli and Roberta Pellegrino and Luigi Ranieri},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Systems, Man, and Cybernetics: Systems},
This paper focuses on applying multicriteria decision making tools to determine an optimal energy retrofit plan for a portfolio of buildings. We present a two-step decision making technique employing a multiobjective optimization algorithm followed by a multiattribute ranking procedure. The method aims at deciding, in an integrated way, the optimal energy retrofit plan for a whole stock of buildings, optimizing efficiency, sustainability, and comfort, while effectively allocating the available… CONTINUE READING
