In the paper, a problem of determining energy consumption at the stage of breakdown formation in a conducting liquid is considered. The calculation procedure is based on the thermal mechanism of breakdown and takes into account a constant rate of leader system growing, constant resistance value of the gap preceding the leading stage and currents spreading out of the potential electrode and leader formations. The equation for energy losses was derived with allowance for these suppositions.
