Abstract

Using solely economic indicators as a measure of development as a whole is no longer justified and acceptable. The survey covered 11 countries in the region of Southeast Europe—in the region for which indicators of sustainable energetic development were defined. The authors propose a specific way of expressing their needs for treatment using the method of weight coefficients. The results indicate that the efficiency of energetic policy in the region varies widely. Countries at higher level of economic development record a high dependence on energy imports. Countries in the region at a similar stage of development show different energy consumption per capita and the different intensity of energy production from renewable resources. Research shows that energetic efficiency policies in the region, apart from the available energy resources, largely depends on the degree of economic development that a country wants to achieve. Countries at lower level of development show higher degree of sustainability in terms of energy management and vice versa. The most favorable situation was observed in Bulgaria. Negative trends were observed in Greece and Hungary, while in Slovenia the indicators were on the border of sustainability. Data used for research refer to the year 2010.
