Different wind power projects have different external economics level, the practical evaluation on which can provide reference for wind power projects selection and qualify the role of completed projects. In this paper, the external economies of wind power engineering projects were evaluated by employing VIKOR method. The basic theory of VIKOR method was firstly introduced, and then the empirical evaluation was performed. After the evaluation index system was built from environmental, social and economic aspects, the external economies of three selected wind power engineering projects in Hebei province were studied. The evaluation result shows the external economies of wind power project #3 are the best one. The application of VIKOR method in external economies evaluation of wind power project is effective and feasible.
