Multi-criteria Evaluation of Local Energy Resilience

  • Tsuneo TakeuchiEmail author


Based on the data from the Great East Japan Earthquake, I have assessed the prevention (e.g., recovery from blackouts), adaptation (e.g., restoration of thermal power stations), and conversion (conversion into distributed energy systems) with the multi-criteria of the resilience value (e.g., the cost of avoiding blackouts), CO2 emissions reduction, and capital expenditure. As a result, based on these three criteria, conversion into distributed energy systems is the most desirable approach for local energy resilience.
