Switching from traditional industrial systems to a modern way of organizing all processes (including energy supply) on the principles of ‘green’ economy is an up-to-date task, especially for countries under development. The article discusses the using of alternative energy sources to supply part of the energy demands of a chemical plant to produce fertilizers from natural gas in Ukraine. Fertilizers plants consume dozens of MW of power supplied from the grid. A plant pre-analysis showed that there was a high potential for using alternative energy sources. By using RETScreen 4 software it was possible to model systems with one or several alternative energy sources, calculate energy balances, and compare their performance. The results showed that hybrid electricity supply systems can perform beneficially for industry in terms of economy, diversification and environment.
