The paper presents energy technology installations for combined production of methanol and electricity for distributed generation. The technical and economic study is based on mathematical modeling using a system of computer-aided construction of programs and optimization with the models. The results of the effect of fuel composition on methanol and electricity production are presented. The competitiveness of the obtained methanol is assessed. The studies were carried out for various electricity and coal costs. The thermal efficiency of such installations is more than 60 %. At present methanol produced at energy technology installations is competitive with expensive diesel fuel delivered from other areas.
