The article assumes two research objectives. The first research objective is to indicate communities that have the best development conditions for agricultural biogas plants. The second research objective is the theoretical evaluation of the biomass potential as a substrate in agricultural biogas plants. The research was conducted on both the rural and urban-rural municipalities. The municipalities determinants levels were determined using the synthetic indicator. The research was conducted on substrates such as: manure, corn silage, grass silage, beet leaf silage, agro - food industry wastes. The research results indicate that the best conditions for the development of agricultural biogas plants are in the north-western part of the region. It was estimated that the maximum quantities of energy can be obtained from organic fertilizers and corn silage. Whereas, the total energy resources potential in the region amounts to 638.7GWh and can meet 10% of electricity demands.
