In the crisis conditions of the development of the national economy of Ukraine, a vitaland and urgent vital problem is the definition of strategic prospects and the improvement of mechanisms for achieving the leading positions of the region in the field of energy efficiency of agro-industrial production. Using the method of estimating energy efficiency according to the criterion “energy efficiency” that synthetically combines the indicators of gross regional product, the amount of energy consumption, and the number of population of the region, the results have been obtained, which in general show the dependence of energy efficiency of the production on the specialization of the regions. Clear distribution by groups according to the indicators of energy efficiency testifies to the high energy intensity and inefficiency of the economy of those areas specializing in the chemical, mining, and metallurgical industries. The regions with significant agro-industrial and recreational specialization in the short-term perspective have very optimistic results. The problems and perspectives of the output of the agrosphere of the Kherson region of Ukraine on the leading positions in energy efficiency were determined. A regional mechanism for managing the energy efficiency of agro-industrial production is proposed. The proposals on the organization and implementation of the complex monitoring of energy efficiency of agro-industrial production in the regions and its analysis at the national level are formulated. The work on monitoring and evaluation is proposed to be carried out in stages: planning analytical work, compilation of informative data, calculating work, development of proposals, and reporting of the results of research to relevant structures. It is proved that the implementation of the energy efficiency policy will help to overcome the crisis, as well as to achieve significant growth and stabilization of the economy of the region and the country.
