This paper describes the geopolitical importance of fossil fuels – oil, coal and natural gas. There has been a struggle over strategic use of oil and gas reserves for decades everywhere around the world. The same will continue in the future with the natural resources that are currently the most common in use. A few of the most powerful economic countries in the world are in a battle over a control for remaining fossil fuel reserves and its transportation routes. Politics has to, as a part of economic development, take uncompromising actions in order to control strategic energy reserves, which are not just a source of power, but of conflicts too. Croatia has a great potential within the European Union to make developmental progress based on the energy.
