Institute of Power Engineering of the Academy of Sciences of Belarus, Akademicheskaya Str. 15/2, Minsk, Belarus
The authors have made a hypothesis that there are groups of the countries with a similar level of certain factors development (the level of economic development; the amount of harmful emissions in the atmosphere; the electrification level; the stock level of energy resources) for which application of a certain set of strategies within the concept of sustainable energy development is the most typical. To implement this hypothesis in this article the cluster analysis was carried out to allocate groups of the countries with the similar characteristics. The vertically integrated hierarchical structure of strategies was constructed. And the most typical strategies of sustainable energy development for 149 countries were revealed. By means of the discriminant analysis the most characteristic strategies of sustainable energy development for each cluster were defined. According to the research, for the EEU countries the most typical strategy in the power industry is use of RES. The analysis of renewable energy development in the EEU countries in 2000-2015 was carried out and the barriers and prospects of its further application in these countries were revealed.
