Consequently, overcoming the traditional framework is getting basic precondition for achieving sustainable development in the energy sector, covering the whole energy system for research purposes due to global and coherent transition from forecasting of energy development to constructing of new alternatives and creating a new world which meet the goals of sustainable development. The next step will be a creation of ways of their achievement, and management systems, which allows countries, regions and the whole world to stay on that pathway.
