Abstract: Motivation: The concept of sustained development has been implemented on an increasingly large number of areas of human activity. Energy is one of those areas in the European Union in which this idea is used. Aim: The aim of this study is to assess the energy generation development in Poland and in the other EU countries in the context of sustainable development policy. Results: Considering the highly diverse environmental circumstances, not all countries are likely to meet the ambitious objectives of the EU energy policy in the area of environmental conservation without having to make sacrifices in the socio-economic area. Taking into account the EU’s enormous dependence on external supplies of energy carriers, it seems justified to use the concept of sustainable energy security, taking into account the social and technical conditions of individual countries.
