A conceptual model of legal support of Ukraine's energy security in the European and Euro-Atlantic course has been created, which is based on: development of a set of immediate measures aimed at overcoming potentially large-scale disruptions in energy supply; strengthening emergency assistance mechanisms in the event of energy emergencies (development of specific solidarity mechanisms), coordination of assessed risks and action plans, including for the protection of critical energy infrastructure; creation of an effectively functioning and fully integrated internal energy market; increasing the level of own energy production in Ukraine (primarily using renewable energy sources); development of the latest energy technologies; diversification of ways to supply basic fuel and energy resources and creation of appropriate infrastructure; improving the coordination of national energy policy and EU energy policy, etc.

Proposals have been developed to optimize the legal provision of Ukraine's energy security in the European and Euro-Atlantic course, which should take place in the following areas: bringing national legislation in line with EU legislation, norms and standards provided by the Association Agreement between Ukraine and the European Union. formation of full-fledged competitive common electricity and gas markets, Ukraine's integration into the common energy space, synchronization of energy systems and markets with European and EU-EU cooperation in the following areas: gas supply (creation of an international consortium for joint management of Ukrainian GTS, etc.), etc.

The obtained new scientific results allowed to identify the main threats to Ukraine's energy security and suggest ways to overcome them. Such threats include: depreciation of fixed assets, insufficient competition in energy markets, incomplete integration with EU electricity and gas supply systems, deepening energy poverty, uncontrolled change in the structure of generating capacity, lack of energy reserves, cyber threats, shadowing of energy. resources and equipment, the impact of climate change on the structure and regimes of energy consumption, as well as staff shortages and loss of scientific and technological potential.

The provisions of the conceptual model of Ukraine's energy security in the conditions of the European and Euro-Atlantic course have been implemented.
