Özet

Today energy demand in the world cannot be met based on the growing population of
the countries. Exhaustible resources are not enough to supply this energy requirement. Furthermore,
the pollution created by these sources is one of the most important issues for all living things.
In this context, clean and sustainable energy alternatives need to be considered. In this study, a
novel interval-valued neutrosophic (IVN) ELECTRE I method is conducted to select renewable energy
alternative for a municipality. A new division operation and deneutrosophication method for
interval-valued neutrosophic sets is proposed. A sensitivity analysis is also implemented to check
the validity of the proposed method. The obtained results and the sensitivity analysis demonstrate
that the given decision in the application is robust. The results of the proposed method determine
that the wind power plant is the best alternative and our proposed method’s decisions are consistent
and reliable through the results of comparative and sensitivity analyses.
