The paper is concerned with the statement of a district heating systems reliability problem. The reliability is planned to be ensured through the optimal distribution of reliability parameters among components of system, considering the capabilities of the prosumer to supply part of load by their heat sources. The methods and models are suggested to solve this problem. They are based on the theory of random processes, theory of hydraulic circuits and basic laws of cogeneration. The case study results obtained using the developed technique are presented. A potential economic benefit of involving the prosumer is demonstrated in the case study. The conclusions and directions for further research are formulated.
