The aim of this study is to examine the cost management strategies of low-carbon renewable energy projects. The main contribution is a novel hybrid model based on Pythagorean fuzzy DEMATEL, TOPSIS and Shapley value to find appropriate policies to improve these projects. The results indicate that internal process has always the lowest costs for the solar energy alternatives. In addition, customer is the lowest cost factor with respect to the wind energy alternative. Thus, it is obvious that improving the qualification of the employees is essential for the improvement of the solar energy projects. Moreover, the effectiveness of the wind energy investments can be increased with the help of giving significance to the customers. Furthermore, it is also concluded that when the level of the cooperation increases, the efficiency of the investments can be higher. Another important point is that if the investors prefer to make weak or strong cooperative cost management strategy, they should primarily focus on solar energy projects because they have lower costs in comparison with other alternatives.
