In this paper, the four states along the U.S. border with Mexico are suggested to form an energy compact. To derive a settlement, two major model problems are built and solved. (1)Combine Analytic Hierarchy Process(AHP), an Objective Evaluation Model(OPM) based on Max-Entropy and Grey Relation Analysis(GRA) to derive Sustainability Index(SI) for evaluation of energy usage of each state; (2)Integrate SI with Linear Programming Model(LPM) to design optimal goal for the compact. Finally, a development strategy of 28.6% Hydroelectricity, 34.5% Wind power, 16.3% Biomass, 20.6% Geothermal is given as the compact’s goal.
