Abstract. The energy branch development forecast for the near decades is analyzed in the article. The prospects of traditional energetics (renewable and nonrenewable), fuel resources and advantages of the atomic power generating capacity, the dynamics of its development in the Ith century are examined. It is pointed to the complexity of the branch development forecasting owing to its high capital intensity and, subsequently, its sugnificant inertance.
