Previous research has identified 11 technologies that use resources that are available in or come from cities. It has been established that using these technologies, the flows from energy carriers required by cities could be reduced. These carriers can be electricity or fuels. Of the identified technologies, eight can produce electricity: biomass, biodigestor biogas, landfill biogas, waste incineration, tidal, small wind, small hydroelectric and photovoltaic technologies. The use of these technologies depends on the existence of resources and technical, economic and social or environmental factors. This research proposes the use of multiple-criteria techniques to select the most appropriate options for promoting renewable energy in cities. This approach was applied to the medium-sized city of Cuenca in Ecuador. Ecuador is a developing country, is an oil producer and has important water resources. The authors concluded that studies of the potential for implementing hydroelectric and solar photovoltaic energy and energy from landfill gas should be extended. The results coincide with the existing resources, implemented projects and the expectations of local professionals.
