Algeria is one of the largest energy-producing and exporting countries in the world. This has been achieved through the implementation of strategies and policies to promote the economic, social and environmental utilization of energy resources. However, the efforts and policies deployed have not yet placed the country in its proper place with regard to the diversification of energy sources. Such efforts have yet to fully exploit its capacities and reserves of renewable and non-renewable energy resources to diversify its economy, reduce its dependence on the hydrocarbons sector and achieve its economic security. This study aims to establish projections on the strategy of management of energy resources in Algeria. The study will be carried out in different phases: The first phase will be oriented towards the renewable and non-renewable potential available in Algeria. Then, understanding and analyzing the different aspects of the country's energy strategy (production, export), which will be presented in this article, shows that the Algerian economy is mainly based on the export of exhaustible and polluting fossil fuels. While the integration of renewable resources into its energy strategy remains very low compared to the available potential. Finally, an analysis of the current and future energy situation of Algeria to guarantee the energy security of countries.
