From this perspective, renewable energy resources are in alllikelihood the one of the most efficient and effective solutions. That is why there is an intimate connectionbetween renewable energy and sustainable development. This article presents current energy resourcesdata and human activity on it. As energy consumption and economic growth of world is directlydepends on each other, here the issue about efficiency of energy saving. Active and passive measureswhich can be taken by us, can solve some issues relating to energy consumption problems.Key words: Energy resources, fossil fuels, renewable resources, nuclear fuel, energy consumption.
