Sustainable Energy Development

Abstract—Energy production and consumption is closely related with all global economic, social and environmental development issues. In order to sustain and in turn to ensure sustainable society development the energy sector development should be sustainable by itself. Therefore the main goal of sustainable energy development is to ensure production and use of energy resources in ways that promote—or at least are compatible with—long-term human well-being and ecological balance. The competitiveness of countries is directly related to the progress achieved in implementing sustainable energy development as the energy sector has great significance for the future development of the country. The energy sector is crucial for economic growth and has a major impact on the environment. Sustainable energy development permits the decoupling of economic growth from energy consumption and the decoupling of energy consumption from atmospheric pollution.

Index Terms—Energy strategy; sustainable energy; sustainable energy indicators.
