Subject The article reveals trends in the Russian energy supply system. It describes the infrastructure that forms a basis for development and deployment of productive forces with the help of territorial industrial clusters. Objectives The study aims to devise tools to model the implementation of large-scale projects under the program for Russian industrial cluster development. Methods I employ methods of economic analysis, expert assessments, and the agent-oriented approach to simulation. Results The EU-Russia Energy Dialogue is an important aspect of bilateral partnership. Successful economic integration within the international cooperation requires a common infrastructure for development of economic agents in production clusters, which concentrate energy and commodity flows. Large-scale projects implementation necessitates special tools for making effective management decisions. It is proved that in the context of simulation modeling the most appropriate is to use the agent-based approach, which enables to study the behavior of both the decentralized agents and the entire system. Conclusions Using the developed agent-oriented model of industrial cluster formation and functioning, the paper confirms a hypothesis about high dependence of regional industrial potential on the presence of industrial clusters and international transport corridors in the region.
