The clusters’ representatives have been appointed, also with the use of statistical methods. The analysis of change in time of most differentiating variables has been also presented in the article. These semi-dynamic approaches can more adequate supporting of energy transition forecasting processes observed within 2000-2012 period, e.g. in climate or energy polices design including their key interactions with societal and economic environment.
