Sustainability is a comprehensive concept that integrates at least three dimensions of environment, 15 economy and society. The power system is the primary source of greenhouse gas emissions, adversely 16 impacting environmental sustainability. It also generates necessary energy supplies, which promote 17 economic and social sustainable development. Based on the sustainability nature of power system, this 18 study puts forward an improved methodology, namely ‘Planning-Searching-Screening-Reporting19 Reflecting’ (PSSRR Cycle) to review the literature systematically on power system performance 20 evaluation from a sustainability perspective over the past 20 years, with the aim of describing the 21 current state of the whole performance evaluation system including the evaluation framework, 22 evaluation indicators and evaluation methods, and providing research suggestions for future research. 23 This study finds in the current literature that the Triple Bottom Line theory is the most commonly used 24 theoretical evaluation framework; environmental and economic sustainability indicators are more 25 emphasized; the DEA and MCDM methods are the more common evaluation methods. This study 26 presents some future research notes, including improving the Sustainable Balanced Scorecard as a 27 sustainable performance evaluation framework, emphasising more social sustainability indicators, and 28 using a combination of existing evaluation methods to make performance evaluation more efficient 29 and accurate.
