Purpose: Development of fuel and energy supply plans by communes is a tool for active creation of energy policy in the area of their operation. The aim of this article is to describe the legal and management aspects for such an operation. Methodology: Local government units are obliged, apart from the government administration, to take actions to ensure energy security. They include primarily planning activities related to ensuring fuel and energy supplies in the short and long term. An important element in these activities is management control. Findings: It is postulated to increase the activities of communes in the area of creating strategic solutions in this area, and in the field of the voivodeship self-government, to create legal and factual frameworks to combine the potential of communes within broader regional initiatives. Practical implications: The role of residents of communes and energy companies in the process of creating a strategy that will be referenced in these plans is increasing. Originality: Management and legal elements in energy security in local government units
