Abstract: The object of the study is energy management, which activity is directed on providing the rational use of fuel-energetic resources at an enterprise or municipalities that allows to optimize volumes of energy consumption essentially. At elaborating and introducing the system of energy management, an organization may face a series of problems that must be considered more detail. The first problem is essential costs of consulting and certification services. An organization must decide for itself, how will it elaborate and introduce this system, and also is there a necessity to certify the management system, and if this necessity is present, which body must do it (international or national). Another problem is the absence or insufficient competence of specialists in the field of energy saving and energy efficiency. The third problem is investments in energy saving technologies. The fourth problem is the «cool» attitude of leaders of companies to questions of elaboration and introduction of the energy management system. The materials of internal reporting of enterprises were used at the study: reports about energetic audit, data of energetic balances of separate production subdivisions, instructions and strategic documents, energetic policy of an enterprise. Having conducted the analysis of electric energy production in the combined energy system of Ukraine and grounded the necessity of using energy management, it was established, that electric energy production in the combined energy system of Ukraine in 2017 increased by 2.5 % (by 1bil 884.8 mil kW-hour) comparing with 2016 – to 78 bil 345.8 mil kW-hour. The directions of state support in the field of energy saving and energy efficiency increase were determined. For providing the sustainable economy of expenditures for energetic resources, there was offered the structure and interaction of energy management elements for enterprises with the strategic direction of development. Due to it, it is possible to achieve essential energy saving and to decrease negative results at bad functioning of heating systems in buildings without great financial losses.
