This study aims at investigating the technology of hierarchical modeling of large energy systems when substantiating their development and control over their operation. To build the hierarchy of models of an energy system, we rely on the property of heterogeneity of the structure of complex systems. As a proof of concept of the technology, we present a two-level hierarchy of models employed for solving the problem of substantiating the development of the Unified Energy System of Russia.
