ABSTRACT
Over the last several years, Serbia's economic development has been characterized by deterioration in the quality of growth. Thus, in the coming years, rational use of domestic economic resources and working potential will be the priority issue. In that sense, energy supply represents the greatest challenge for the Serbian state and economy. Natural resources are bound to be exhausted, so there has been a move towards new technologies and the production of alternative (renewable) energy sources. The degree to which Serbia will be capable of coping with such challenges depends on its success in defining a national strategy of economic development based on the necessity of securing energy effectiveness.
