Summary/Abstract: The article explores the types of actors (of political or economic nature) involved in energy issues of all sorts. The first chapter explores the traditional role of the state. The second one explores the consequences – in energy issues of all sorts – of the fact that state is a sovereign entity with all correlated rights (including the way in which the relations with foreign investors are shaped and regulated). The third chapter explores and presents non-state actors with interests and activities in the area of energy (mainly trans-national companies – TNCs). The fourth chapter – the final one – explores the role of state-owned companies, mainly in the context when they are completely controlling national markets.
