The analysis of balancing of energy portfolio of the companies from the point of view of its three components - the competitiveness, its energy security and impact on the environment was performed. The study analyzes the appropriateness of portfolio management in the energy sector, applies portfolio and multi-criteria optimization theories. This analysis helps to identify priorities in the formation of companies’ energy portfolio, strengths and weaknesses of various sources of electricity generation. The results of the research will contribute to the understanding of the dynamics of the portfolio and the prospects of its change in the future.
