Abstract. The relevance of the research presented in the article is due to the high socio-economic importance of heat supply in Russia. The article is devoted to the issues of co-production of heat and electricity, as well as the usage of an alternative type of fuel for power generation – biogas, as a result of processing biological waste. The author proposes a comprehensive solution to the problem of the inefficiency of the Russian centralized heat supply: the introduction of cogeneration on the basis of mini- combined heat and power plant, the usage of biogas plants, the development of the legislative framework governing small distributed generation.

Keywords: housing and communal services; energy; heat power; cogeneration; biogas; energy efficiency; alternative energy sources
