Abstract. The global problem of climate change poses a number of significant challenges to the Russian economy: some of them are related to the need to choose forms of response to the strengthening of external climate restrictions, others – to the expediency of transforming public administration models in new external and internal political conditions. To date, factors such as the speed of response and its adequacy to the current state of affairs in the global economy determine the vectors of development of trade policy and transformation of international energy markets. New challenges give rise to new solutions: today, conditions have been formed for an “energy transition” to a new format of international development, to innovative solutions to energy supply issues and to institutional changes in management strategies. Of great importance in this case are the climatic processes that have launched the process of technological re-equipment of almost all industries. In the coming years, the formation of the international climate imperative will be completed, since the world has already made key decisions on the climate agenda. The purpose of the study is to determine the prospects of Russia’s economic policy, taking into account the need for internal adaptation, energy optimization, as well as the formation of carbon markets. As a result of the research, the prospects and foundations of a new climate policy and related models of state regulation are shown, the risks and opportunities of energy optimization for the Russian economy are revealed, its tasks and priority scenarios are justified.

Keywords: climate policy, energy transition, global warming, gray energy, energy optimization, technological independence.
