Determining the optimal combination of energy resources and conversion devices in order to meet the energy requirements of a specific area is called energy planning. This action could be carried out at either centralized or decentralized level. Due to its benefits to environment and society, and in some instances to economy, the latter option has recently attracted great attention of energy planners and policy makers, in particular for satisfying energy demands of rural and isolated areas. In this paper, we develop a new multi-objective optimization model to find out the best combination of distributed energy resources, including demand-side management (DSM) and renewable energy technologies, in order to electrify a remote area. The model is coded by Lingo 8.0 software and the numerical results are presented.
