This paper describes the model, methods and tools to find rational ways of the energy development with regard to energy security requirements. As known, energy security is directly related to the uninterrupted energy supply. It is important to choose rational ways of the energy development with ensuring energy security in the future. A number of the specific external condition combinations of energy sector operation and development taking into account uncertainties and other factors leads to a huge possible energy sector states set. Therefore it cannot be processed in reasonable time. To overcome this issue an approach of combinatorial modeling is applied to manage the growing size of the energy sector states set.
