The mineral mining industry is a huge consumer of power both in Russia and in the world. The problems connected with power failure in the mining industry in recent years have revealed numerous imperfections in the tariff formation and industrial control on the governmental scale. Tariff raising affects the energy-intensive industries in terms of escalation of the production and transportation activity costs. This study aims to find out how to deal with the annual raising of electricity tariff rates, which represents an unmanageable challenge for the energy-intensive industries. The research methodology is based on the analytical and systematic approaches, disclosure of interactions between related industries, system prediction and comparison of empirical data. The research result is the recommendations developed for the interrelated scientific and technological advancement the extractive industry and power-engineering. It should be planned to establish joint basic and applied science centers in the framework of transdisciplinary production. New-generation science and production cooperation between allied industries enables technological innovations. The interests of the two mentioned industries focus on the increased added value in their systems of product value formation. Transdisciplinary R&D implementation at the joint science and technology centers by the expert teams from the mining industry and power-engineering promote innovative development of Russia. The conclusions drawn within the research are founded on the studies in the tariff formation problems in power-engineering. The tariff formation in the power industry influences costs and expenses in the mining industry. The article offers organizational proposals and managerial decision-making guidance. The technological paradigm shift calls for the novel methods and tools to provide competitive abilities in the allied industries.
