The multi-criteria evaluation methods of complex systems such as the new and renewable technologies gradually spring up. The feasibility of energy power plants is evaluated and considered from many aspects, such as technology, economic cost and environment protection. However, the energy power plants’ ranking results in different methods or different weighs can be different. Accordingly, the sequencing results should be aggregated and analyzed, and then an integrated result should be given out. Aiming to get the specific evaluation result, 10 kinds of energy power plants, such as hydro, nuclear, wind, geothermal and biomass plants are considered and evaluated. The singular value decomposition method is employed to aggregate the evaluation results in grey relational method, PROMENTHEE II method, and other results from literature. The integrated evaluation result shows that the hydro and nuclear power plants are located on the first place and the renewable energy power plants have great potential development in the future.
