The article discusses enhancement of resource saving capacity of isolated generating plants in the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) where the Batagai solar electric plant situated beyond the Arctic circle was entered in the Guinness World Records in 2016 as the northernmost power system in the world. With regard to diesel fuel delivery cost, the energy price at diesel power generating plants in Yakutia reaches 24 Rub/kWh. The human comfort in Yakutia can be improved by means of implementing the Energy Strategy of Russia to 2030, as well as by means of using independent hybrid generating plants, conversion of diesel drives to hydrogen fuel and application of fuel accumulators. The wind and solar electric plants are compared and their application fields are identified. The application of independent hybrid generating plants, conversion of diesel drives to hydrogen fuel and application of fuel accumulators can make it possible to enhance resource-saving capacity, ecological safety and energy efficiency, and to reduce diesel fuel consumption by 30–50%.


Resource-saving, energy efficiency, independent solar and wind electric plants, Arctic circle, energy accumulators, renewable sources, ecological safety, supercapacitors, accumulators, diesel fuel.
