Sustainable energy planning, which is a challenging task for energy planners, is a viable solution to the problem of global warming and environmental degradation. Thus, to meet the growing energy needs of the people across the globe, it is necessary to take sustainability indicators into account. In this paper, a multi-objective resource allocation optimization model, which considers four sustainable indicators, for electrification of a remote area is proposed. The indicators that are incorporated into the model to assist the energy planner in determining the optimal mix of distributed energy resources include price of electricity generation, greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, land use and water consumption. The first indicator is considered as a constraint while the latter three cases are treated to as objective functions to be minimized. This model is solved by Lingo 8.0 software and the obtained results are discussed.
