Subject The article deals with the issues of resource energy efficiency in the Sakha (Yakutia) Republic.
Objectives The article aims to assess energy efficiency indicators for the economy of the Republic and determine the qualitative impact of the use of fuel and energy resources in Yakutia.
Methods To produce a consolidated fuel and energy balance, we used a balance method based on the bottoms-up induction technique.
Results The article reveals a general trend in the production and consumption of fuel and energy resources in the Sakha (Yakutia) Republic. It defines the energy efficiency ratios of final consumption and conversion. The article also shows the developed system of energy efficiency indicators for the economy and the main problems and directions for improving the supply-demand balance.
Conclusions and Relevance The analysis of the reporting energy balance shows a low level of energy efficiency in the Sakha (Yakutia) Republic's economy, as evidenced by the decline in the energy utilization rating. Technological modernization of the entire Republic's energy system is required. The results of the energy efficiency evaluation of fuel and energy resources use for the period of 2010 to 2015 can be applied in the development of a fuel and energy industry strategy, as well as forecasting the production and consumption of fuel and energy resources and energy efficiency of both energy facilities and the economy as a whole.

Keywords: fuel and energy balance, boiler and furnace fuels, energy conversion, end-use energy demand, energy efficiency rating
