The concept of the developed model (algorithm) for the formation of rational balances of supply and demand of Russian regions is given. The research is aimed at ensuring rational and efficient exploitation of energy resources in Russia. In the formation of supply-demand balances of the region, the possibility of using local fuels is taken into account. The present model has been developed and preliminarily tested on the example of the Leningrad Oblast and the Komi Republic.
Rational use of local fuel resources in the Leningrad Region should be based on the widespread introduction of briquette fuel from forest waste peat. Developed systems for processing of primary raw materials and mobile resources, creating conditions for employment of the population and reducing the burden on the environment.
