The relation between the charge of Lascoux-Schützenberger and the energy function in solvable lattice models is clarified. As an application, A.N. Kirillov's conjecture on the expression of the branching coefficient of \({\widehat{{\frak {sl}}_n}}/{\frak {sl}}_n\) of Kostka polynomials is proved.

Key words. Crystal, index, charge, energy function, Kostka polynomial.
