Abstract

The paper covers state of the art and prospects for the development of renewable energy in the world and in the European Union. Available energy strategies and forecasts for the energy sector development until 2050 are analyzed. It is shown that it is necessary to reduce total consumption of primary energy by introducing energy efficient technologies and energy saving measures.
