Currently, the problem of the energy sector influence on the environment as one of the anthropogenic factors is obvious. As part of studies to assess the impact of energy sector on the geoecology of the region, it is proposed to develop a Web-based information system integrating mathematical and semantic methods, instrumental tools, a database and a knowledge base of the subject area under consideration. The article discusses the proposed ontological approach to the structuring and integration of data and knowledge necessary for research. Ontologies are proposed to be considered as a prototype of an infological data model when designing a database and knowledge base.
