In this presentation we outline a framework applicable to wire media formed by sets of nonconnected wires. In this framework, the macroscopic material response is described with more independent degrees of freedom than usual. This allows formulating a system of local field equations with which both boundary value problems and problems of radiation of the sources embedded into wire medium can be solved efficiently.
