Energy environment has been changing rapidly such as the fluctuation of oil prices and the effect on UNFCCC (United nations framework convention on climate change). Korea is easily affected by the change of oil prices due to poor natural resources and large dependence of consumed energy resources in Korea. Energy technology development is a crucial key considering Korea's national energy security and environments. In this study, we establish the criteria list and prioritize relative weights of criteria and sub-criteria for assessing and selecting strategic Big-sized R&D programs in the sector of energy technology development. A fuzzy AHP approach, which integrates fuzzy theory into analytic hierarchy process (AHP) approach, reflects the vagueness of human thoughts and perception as making pairwise comparisons of criteria and alternatives. The fundamental data of this research results will support R&D planning phase for policy makers as selecting strategic R&D programs for producing well focused R&D outcomes.
