The heart consumes huge amounts of energy to fulfil its function as a relentless pump. A highly sophisticated system of energy generation based on flexibility of substrate use and efficient energy production, effective energy sensing and energy transfer ensures function of the healthy heart across a range of physiological situations. In left ventricular hypertrophy and heart failure, these processes become disturbed, leading as will be discussed to impaired cardiac energetic status and to further impairment of cardiac function. These metabolic disturbances form a potential target for therapy.
