This study focuses on the evaluation and selection of wind power farm locations. We propose a systematic approach using Fuzzy Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) based on interval-valued Pythagorean fuzzy sets to consider uncertainties and lack of information in the decision-making environment of real-life applications. The approach enables better representation of membership and non-membership functions. The study fills the gap in the literature by proposing the application of a Pythagorean Fuzzy AHP method. We test the proposed method with a real-life problem in Turkey based on the judgements of three experts/decision-makers, and compare the results with interval-valued Type-2 AHP method.

Key words: Wind energy, location selection, Pythagorean fuzzy AHP, interval-valued Pythagorean fuzzy sets
