Abstract

The given article has the aim to analyse the key aspects of renewable energy source usage in rural
areas of Hungary and their impact on sustainable rural development including the agricultural
sector. The shares of renewable energy in gross final energy consumption, transport, electricity,
heating and cooling were considered. Besides this, the promotions of the national policy with regard
to renewable energy sources and their impact on the agricultural sector were investigated. Biomass
was potentially recognised, as a primary source for energy purposes in rural areas. The article
concludes with the overview of the relevant policy implications and consideration of the topic’s case
studies in Hungary.
