ABSTRACT
Purpose. Development of the technology and presentation of the results of calculation of the effectiveness of waste mine cavities utilization for renewable energy accumulation. Methodology. Simulation of the technology process of receiving, saving and use of solar, wind, and geothermal energy, which uses mine cavities (Odessa catacombs) for accumulation of the energy. Findings. We have proved the high performance and investment appeal of the technology of the mine cavities utilization as the accumulator of the renewed energy for technological needs for production, hot water supply, heating during the winter period and space cooling during the summer period due to the geothermal energy of stone walls. Originality. We have presented the innovative technology of use of the abandoned mines (Odessa catacombs) for the accumulation of renewable energy for the needs of the city. Practical value. We analyzed the available options of use of different types of the renewed energy sources in Odessa region. We evaluated their power, economic, and ecological efficiency and approximated the payback periods of such projects taking into account market conditions. It may give almost unlimited economy of traditional energy resources at the minimum negative influence on the environment.
