The energy sector is constantly changing. Electromobility, improvement of energy efficiency, smart cities these are just some of the challenges that the present power industry is facing. The main goal for the power industry is to ensure the energy security of its customers, to develop low-community technologies which are mainly based on renewable energy sources and local raw materials. The transition from a centralized energy sector based mainly on conventional power plants to a distributed energy sector requires constant control and management of the generation and demand for energy. One of the solution existing since 2016 are energy clusters. The concept of their functioning is based on the civil-law agreement of locally operating entities that produce, sell, store and consume electricity, heat and cold. The main purpose of introducing energy clusters is the development of distributed energy. Energy clusters ensure the improvement of local energy security with relatively low outlays and low environmental impact. Technological development and installations based on renewable energy sources make energy clusters a beneficial and cost-effective solution for local energy sector. The article presents the idea of energy clusters functioning, and describes the current status of development. It also includes the hybrid systems characteristics of RES systems as an effective source of energy. The conclusion includes the legitimacy of the energy cluster development based on RES installations.
