Abstract. Recent solar and stellar studies suggest that statistical ares
may play a fundamental role in the coronal energy budget of the Sun and
of active stars. Flares appear to be distributed in energy in the form of
a power law, dN=dE / E , with a power-law index in the vicinity of
2. The value of is important since in the case of  2 a continuation
of the are energy distribution to small energies could provide the energy
