It has been established that global investment in renewable energy has been growing steadily over the past ten years. The purpose of this paper is to analyze the current position of Russia in the field of renewable energy production and to develop recommendations for the further development of renewable energy. As a result of the analysis, it is determined that almost all regions of the Russian Federation have opportunities for economically viable use of several types of renewable energy sources. The potential of renewable energy sources available in Russia will be able to provide one third of the annual energy needs of the domestic economy. At the same time, the study showed that Russia is currently not a leader in renewable energy production. The authors evaluated the current state in Russia in the field of hydropower, geothermal energy, solar energy, wind power plants, biomass, biogas and landfill gas. Renewable energy in Russia is underestimated in terms of its socio-economic and political importance. At present, Russia is implementing a raw materials model of development. A set of measures has been defined, the implementation of which will promote the development of renewable energy sources in Russia. The results of the study can be used in practical activities of public authorities in the development of strategic directions of innovation-oriented development of the Russian Federation.
