Purpose: The purpose of the research is consideration of trends and prospects of supplying electric power to remote, technically and technologically isolated regions of Russia. Classification of Russian energy consumption areas. Analysis of the current methods of supplying electric power to remote regions. Determination of the trend of changing the existing power generating facilities of remote regions. Determination of autonomous electrification regions of Russia. Juxtaposition of the effectiveness and use range of various autonomous power generation sources, in particular, alternative (renewable) power generation sources. Methods: Static data analysis. Numerical and analytical methods of electrical engineering, multi-criteria solution optimization methods. Results: A map of Russian territory electrification from the centralized power supply system and autonomous power generation sources has been made. Energy consumption areas have been classified. A model for calculation of power generation sources efficiency has been created. Dependence of the generated energy on the population with year-by-year breakdown has been shown. It has been proved that at present energy to the major part of newly electrified regions of Russia is supplied by autonomous power generating facilities. Practical significance: An allowable distance for efficient electrification of small consumers from the centralized power supply lines has been shown. A calculation model for comparing the efficiency of electrification means has been given.
