This article presents analysis of the energy system of the Arctic zone of the North-East of
Russia – the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia): by heat supply objects and production of electricity. This system
in question features autonomy and dependence on provision of resources during short navigation
periods of cargo delivery through complex transport schemes. The main problem expressed of transportation
of resources, a high transport component in cost of production is designated. This causes
energy companies to use mechanisms of cross-subsidies, which fact in general affects the price policy
of public utilities in the region. Development of Russian Arctic territories requires reliable sources of
electricity, thus in connection with the geographical features the region needs new solutions and technologies.
It is necessary to provide measures of state support for the formation of pricing policy aimed
at stimulating the use of renewable energy sources.

Cross-Subsidies, Renewable Energy Sources.
