Renewable energy (RE)-powered desalination technology benefits both the water supply and energy utilization. Therefore, it is critical to propose a decision-making tool to identify the best
A review of the energy–carbon–water nexus: Concepts, research focuses, mechanisms, and methodologies
The energy–carbon–water (ECW) nexus has aroused increasing attention worldwide, as it is very important for sustainable development of socioeconomic systems. Researchers conducted a literature review
Sustainability Performance Assessment Using Self-Organizing Maps (SOM) and Classification and Ensembles of Regression Trees (CART)
The results indicated that the method developed by ensembles of CART and clustering provide higher prediction accuracy than individual CART models.


General sustainability indicator of renewable energy system based on grey relational analysis
This research answers the question of how to measure the sustainability of a renewable energy systems (RESs) as a physical parameter. Renewable energy is considered as a solution for mitigating the
The integration of social concerns into electricity power planning : a combined delphi and AHP approach
The increasing acceptance of the principle of sustainable development has been a major driving force towards new approaches to energy planning. This is a complex process involving multiple and
Development of an Environmental Impact Assessment and Decision Support System for Seawater Desalination Plants
Seawater desalination is a rapidly growing coastal-based industry. The combined production capacity of all seawater desalination plants worldwide has increased by 30% over the last two years: from 28
