Energy efficiency measures and increasing use of renewable energy can contribute to the sustainable development at global level, to increase of the energy saving in any economy, and to decrease of energy dependence at global and macro level. In this paper we aim to investigate the amount of electricity produced and the development of price of electricity sold and purchased by the different actors in the Hungarian electricity market between 2008 and 2013. Moreover we analyse the rate of renewable energy sources in the production of electricity, look for the answer to the question whether the rate of renewable energy sources in electricity production increased or decreased in Hungary.

Keywords: sources of electricity production, supply of electricity, price of electricity
