Most companies aimed at long-term sustainable development take full responsibility to reduce the environmental risks in order to guarantee environmental safety and social justice of the planet’s population. In accordance with circular economy principles, energy efficiency and energy saving are currently among the most important strategic directions for technological development of many enterprises. For transition to «low carbon» development scenario, companies are setting priorities and goals, taking into account the concept of sustainable development, considering the energy consumption index or energy usage ratio as one of the key business indicators. An analysis of existing methods and approaches in companies’ energy management show a low level of strategic planning and management. To improve energy efficiency and implementation of energy policy, as well as to create conditions for company’s sustainable development in long term, it is necessary to apply innovative management methods. Such approaches as transition engineering and participatory backcasting will allow companies to determine the main directions of strategic business development in the field of energy efficiency. The need to improve methodological approaches to managing the energy sector of the enterprise’s economy determines the relevance of the chosen research topic. The aim of this paper is to present the results of CREA-RE-RU project, which deals with circular economy and resource efficiency development. The project investigated following key points: existing methods and approaches for managing energy resources of an enterprise; a review of innovation management methods for improving the energy efficiency of companies; application of the «transition engineering» approach to the formation of the company’s energy development strategy; the results of application of the «transition engineering» approach for developing an energy efficiency strategy for the brewery company.
