This paper presents the essential features of a model for regional energy supply optimization. The approach proposed in the paper differs significantly from other models dealing with similar problems. These models are in most cases linear optimization models with a single attribute objective function (usually costs); other aspects such as the impact on the environment, are included in the form of constraints. The method described here attempts to include simultaneously several attributes of a certain energy supply strategy related to its economical and ecological consequences in a multiattribute utility function, which is then used as the objective function of the optimization model.
