Abstract The main objective of energy policy is to develop sustainable energy efficiency in national and regional level. This policy is based on Latvian energy strategy, which is the highest hierarchical planning document. In every country (including the highly developed ones) there are less developed peripheral regions, and studies show that it is possible to raise more rapidly energy efficiency on a national level by improving just the underdeveloped regions. That is why the EU is developing regional programs where planning and their implementation are essentially different from planning on a state (national) level with the traditional methods. Special regional planning centers are being created for planning in the regions, carrying out also implementation of the plans by a deeper study of the potential of the local resources in the regions. Latvia is adapting and developing the model of the Sustainable Energy Community (SEC).
