Taking a solar space-heating project in Tianjin as an example, three different space-heating schemes, solar energy-electricity heating, solar energy-gas heating and oil-fired boiler heating were analyzed and compared by using the Analytical Hierarchy Process method and an optimized scheme was thus obtained. At the same time, decision-making was discussed in the solar space-heating schemes. Compared with traditional AHP method, it is shown that the AHP method provides an effective way for multi-objective decision on heating scheme and makes the decision more scientific and reasonable.
