Abstract. The article is devoted to the consideration of theoretical and methodological aspects of the study of household behavior in the field of energy conservation of various types. Based on the use of interdisciplinary research methods, such issues as the content of the essence of household behavior in the energy market, the definition of a nature-friendly economy, consumer and production basic models of household behavior in the energy market, the basics of developing technological, moral-educational, market models of energy-saving behavior of households are considered.

A nature-friendly economy is also defined as a sphere of economic activity based on the use of nature-like technologies, energy as the main resource in different types and forms produced by nature-like technologies.
