The article is devoted to the analysis of the current state and prospects for the development of renewable (green) energy market. The achieved level of technologies and equipment for production of renewable energy and the main trends in the development of these issues is analyzed. The demand of green energy is analyzed from the point of view of free market niches for this type of energy. The main focus in the study is made on the organizational and economic mechanisms for connecting new suppliers to existing grids. The accessibility of energy systems is considered as a key factor for the development of the green energy market. Technical, organizational and economic issues of ensuring the accessibility of energy systems are analyzed. The barriers that prevent reaching the level of grids accessibility necessary for the formation of an effective market for green energy, are analyzed. Getting electricity index as a component of the Doing Business ranking is used for comparative analysis of availability of electricity grids in the world economies and Russia. The Smart Grid concept is analyzed from the point of view of the development of grid’s availability.
