Taking into account that today the consumption of energy has grown six times since half a century ago, investments are needed for diversifying the sources of energy consumption and raising the efficiency of energy use. In this article authors concentrate on declaring trends in the energy field in the last decade, with emphasis on production, consumption and installed capacity. We also focus on shaping a view for Romanian energy market, which even though it is a net importer of energy, it also has a great potential for various resources: natural gas, coal, oil, uranium ore and renewable resources. Finally the subject of financing investments in renewable energy is discussed. All this arguments combined may explain our country’s average score for the Energy Sustainability Index that gives us a middle place in this country ranking.
