Retrofitting existing buildings with appropriate green technologies is an important element of strategies to mitigate climate change. The selection of green technologies can be a challenging task, where multiple criteria exist and interrelate. However, it is still common for decisions to be based on a single criterion, such as energy efficiency or cost. This paper aims to evaluate the application of Multi-Criteria Decision Making (MCDM) methods to the selection of green technologies for retrofitting to existing buildings. The paper begins with a review of MCDM methods and the use of these techniques for selecting technologies to retrofit existing buildings. The applicability of Analytical Hi..
