The proper social and economic development of both individual countries, as well as of the whole world is impossible without the adequate supply of energy carriers. Energy is the indispensable for all branches of economic activity production factor. The manufacturing of fuel and energy is becoming more and more expensive because of the necessity to reach for more costly primary resources, application of more costly technologies, and also because of the increasing demands in environmental protection. The interactions between the energy system and the economy are becoming ever more complex. Therefore investigation of the development of energy system i.e. the complex of production, transport, distribution and utilization of energy, must be closely bound with investigation of the superior systea of the national economy.
