Sakhalin Island has significant hydrocarbon reserves and other non-renewable and renewable energy potential. To a large extent, the island’s economy and social development depend on the export of energy resources and/or energy itself. At the same time, economic integration processes are actively developing in the East Asia region, which will entail significant, controversial and difficult-to-forecast changes in the situation, especially due to rapid development of innovative technologies, intellectualization of energy infrastructures, the emergence of new industries, and growing environmental problems. To optimize the use of energy potential for the sustainable development of the island in the context of the East Asia region and for the intellectualization of the preliminary cascade of energy production, it is necessary to develop a decision support system that supports wide-ranging spatial and temporal dynamics aimed at ensuring sustainable development of the region in a wide range of risks and threats. The theoretical significance of the solution of the problem posed is due to the uniqueness, complexity and scale of the processes involved. Geoinformation possibilities in solving this problem within the framework of the Digital Earth concept are considered. Its practical relevance is connected with the significance of the results of the work for the energy and entire national economic complex of Sakhalin, Russia, East Asia and, more broadly, the region of Silk Road as well as with the possibility of both direct economic and social effects and the possibility of minimizing the economies emerging at the integration of Countries of East Asia.
