Prospects for Development of Renewable Energy Sources to Preserve the Ecosystem of Arctic Zone of Russia


Objectives: Environmental balance of Yakutia is quite delicate, but the energy needs are growing. Therefore, the study ­evaluates the efficiency of employing renewable energy sources that do not pollute the environment. Methods: The study applies the methods of economic analysis as follows: normative method (the established maximum permissible ­concentrations of pollutants), economic and mathematical simulation (modeling the efficiency of renewable energy sources and estimating the economic effect of their use) and historical method (historical data on atmospheric ­pollutant emissions and historical prices for hydrocarbon energy products). These methods enable complex investigation of ­ecological and ­economic efficiency of renewable energy sources. Findings:The principal result ofthe study is represented by the ­evaluated economic efficiency of renewable energy sources, namely, productive efficiency, reduced dependency on ­hydrocarbon fuel supplies and lower expenses for hydrocarbons. Applications/Improvements: The materials of the study are of practical importance for evaluating the long-term efficiency of renewable energy sources to further promote their use.
