Using a systems approach, this article presents a brief description of the Colombian energy system and shows how a sustainable energy system could be obtained. Particular emphasis has been given to identifying all the stakeholders and the relations between them. This study used an international protocol proposed by the Initiative in Science and Technology for Sustainability (ISTS), which consists of a series of questions that guide the investigation in order to identify and to propose solutions of the problem related to the energy system.

Then, a control model is considered in order to control the decisions of the policy makers and the decision makers in the energy sector. Using software that allows the inclusion of all the actors involved in the development of the power policy, this model redefines the relations between the actors.

This new system is a useful tool, cradled in the MARKAL family of models. The control system proposed will help to introduce more credibility in the resultant policies and in the model itself and the system outputs would be more sustainable ecologically and provide robust long term solutions.

After examining the Columbian Energy Policy Making System using the ISTS protocol we can identify some problems that should be solved in order to achieve a Sustainable Energy System.
