The paper describes theoretical foundations of the Data Envelopment Analysis method. The peculiarities of its application at enterprises of the heat supply system of the fuel and energy complex are considered. The Charnes, Cooper and Rhodes model of the Data Envelopment Analysis method is studied and analyzed. The paper describes the application of the Charnes, Cooper and Rhodes model with constant economies of scale for the heat supply system, i.e., for combined heat and power plants and boiler houses. Inputs and outputs indicators for the enterprises under consideration are studied and determined. The thermal power of the equipment and fuel equivalent consumption are selected as two inputs. The supply of thermal energy to the heating system is selected as one output. The efficiency indicators of 27 combined heat and power plants and boiler houses were calculated applying the Charnes, Cooper and Rhodes model of the Data Envelopment Analysis method. The orientation of the Charnes, Cooper and Rhodes model is selected to increase the output. The thermal energy supply to the heating system is considered. Firms with a maximum efficiency that is equal to 1 were identified according to the results of calculations applying the Data Envelopment Analysis method. For the rest of the firms, whose efficiency indicators turned out to be less than 1, changes in output indicators were calculated to achieve maximum efficiency. This made it possible to increase the enterprises’ efficiency of the studied sample.
