The sustainable development concept, introduced in the last century, characterizes the harmonious, balanced, minimally conflicted progress of our entire civilization, countries or its groups.
To ensure sustainable development, appropriate conditions should be created for the all economy subsystems functioning, including the energy sector, which impacts on both the level of society development and the level of the aggregate anthropogenic impact on the environment significantly.
