ENERGY SECURITY INTENSIFICATION DETERMINANTS IN THE CHAINS OF FINAL ENERGY VALUE CREATION

Kuceba R., Pabian A., Bylok F. *


Abstract

Presently, in the times of various threats and frequent economic, social and political crises - Energy Security Intensification is of key importance for the constant development  of the Global Society. Energy Security is the term that cannot be unequivocally defined and determined in the global grasp. In the economically, ethnically, culturally and socially diversified world there are different views as well as the awareness concerning  sources of possible threats and crises. Various threats that can have influence on possible critical situations depend on the regional division. The following threat factors can be distinguished here: resource ones, technological ones, social ones, economic  ones and political ones. Geographical differentiation of the above mentioned determinants makes it necessary to adopt a multidimensional attitude to the notion of energy security as well as ecological and economic security.


Key words: energy security, global society, value chain.

Introduction

First part of the present paper introduces definitions and essential issues concerning energy security in the global perspective. It shows different approaches to this notion for  various regions, economically well-developed ones being energy resources importers as well as underdeveloped ones being dependent on external energy resources suppliers. The author turns particular attention to the sources of energy threats and crises   that ensue from, among other things, the policy of the countries - primary energy owners - that own resources such as  natural gas and oil; limited  size of their resources and reserves as well as climatic changes. The above mentioned sources stimulate  the importance of energy security as a global priority. Thus, the author attempts to unify the definitions of energy security, taking into consideration regional differentiation of energy security intensification determinants. This part of the paper shows  the nature of energy security analysis and creation in individual chains of final value creation, such as:
-
energy resources supplies (primary energy);
-
secondary energy production and transfer;
-
primary/secondary energy use.

Summary

To sum up, economic, technical, ecological and social determinants in individual autonomous phases of energy security growth interact and affect themselves. They are convergent,  compatible and integral. Strong relationships among individual conditions of energy security must be emphasized here. Relationships among autonomous states taking place in the individual links constitute one common system - final energy value chain, in  the light of energy security. The increase in their integration level, compatibility and convergence affect synergically the value of the final product's value and energy security, considered in this context as an integrated system.

DETERMINANTY INTENSYFIKACJI BEZPIECZENSTWA ENERGETYCZNEGO W LA NCUCHACH TWORZENIA WARTOSCI ENERGII FINALNEJ


Streszczenie


W referacie przedstawiono aktualne zagadnienia z zakresu bezpieczenstwa energetycznego. Zaproponowano systemowe podejscie definiowania  i analizy bezpieczenstwa energetycznego. Na podstawie badan empirycznych wyznaczono: ekonomiczne, spol eczne, ekologiczne oraz techniczne determinanty intensyfikacji bezpieczenstwa energetycznego. Determinanty intensyfikacji bezpieczenstwa energetycznego  zestawiono, w poszczegolnych ogniwach lancucha tworzenia wartos ci energii finalnej dla konsumentow, wprowadzajac fazy wzrostu bezpieczenstwa omawianego sektora gospodarczego.
