Subject The article discusses how to sustainably raise the adaptability of the national energy system by making it more effective and implementing S&T achievements. The study also investigates how the system can be controllably influenced by outlining and implementing the sound and scientifically proven energy policy, which directly addresses inter alia the national energy security by increasing its adaptability.
Objectives The study is aimed to unfold the theory and practice of managing the adaptability of energy systems in order to ensure the sustainable energy security of the country.
Methods The study involves general scientific methods of analysis and synthesis, systems analysis, and special methods for analyzing the operation of energy systems.
Results I found key principles for adding new elements and correlations to the national energy system when outlining the energy policy pursuing the higher adaptability of the national energy system, growth in its complexity during the digitization and creation of new sources of energy. The article identifies and describes methods for influencing the national energy system directly and indirectly so as to increase its adaptability.
Conclusions and Relevance Considering the new dynamic environment which the fuel and energy complex operates in and changes in the power engineering development paradigm, the government should formulate its energy policy so as to integrate the adaptability of the national energy system and strategic decision-making process.
