It could be said that there are the notion of energy comprises different elements of security in the framework of sustainable development, but the security of supply has been particularly emphasized. Different issues related to energy security are raised in the context of a wider interpretation of the place and role of energy sector in the environmental field, and the contribution of that sector to the actual state of the environment. In this context, the issues of climate change, the reduction of greenhouse gases, the improvement of energy efficiency and the development of alternative energy sources have predominated.
