Abstract: We present the results of calculations of the average cost of thermal energy for the life cycle of boiler houses,  working on different kinds  of fossil fuels, rendering plants, heat pump station (HPS), and solar power plant.
We have established that, under conditions of  market competition, it is most reasonable to  implement boilers using bituminous coal and waste energy (exhaust gases). In order that HPS  could compete with gas boiler houses, it is necessary to  reduce the cost of electricity for HPS, or increase the  transformation ratio of  heat pumps, or lower the cost of equipment for HPS. This, in turn, can be achieved by using heat pumps and other equipment of domestic production.
Keywords: heat supply, thermal energy, cost estimating,  boiler house, heat pump, solar power plant.
