National energy sector management differs from country to country. Therefore, it is important to develop country-specific energy models to analyse the energy demand, structure and potential policy instruments. The paper presents a pathway for adaption and improvement of the standard TIMES model structure to the specific country requirements. The analysis is based on a three-sector (industrial, commercial and residential) case study of Latvia. Literature review presents experience of other research when developing different energy models as well as adapting the TIMES model structure. The main results show a distribution of the final energy consumption and the validation of the obtained results of the sectors studied. Method and intermediate results presented in the paper are part of an ongoing modelling process of Latvia's energy sector.
