Energy Efficiency Description:

The main goal of the Strategy is to ensure Lithuania’s energy independence before the year 2020 by strengthening Lithuanian’s energy security and competitiveness.

The following main programmes and plans are prepared, setting the particular measures for the implementation of energy sector targets: District Heating Development Guidelines, the Energy Efficiency Action Plan, and the National Renewable Energy Resources Development Strategy adopted on 21 June 2010 by the Government Resolution No 789 of the Republic of Lithuania.

Improvement of energy efficiency through increase of cogeneration is among the targets set in the National Energy Independence Strategy.

Besides the main objectives set until 2020, in the currently valid Energy independence strategy the energy sector development guidelines for 2030 and 2050 are set. However, there is no quantitative targets for RES, EE but the guidelines for 2030 are the following:

  • in 2020–2030 in the country energy efficiency will increase by 1.3 % per year;
  • RES share will continue to increase in the final energy balance;
Renewable Energy Description:

The purpose of the National Energy Independence Strategy is to define the main objectives of the Lithuanian state in the energy sector and to set national targets for the implementation of strategic initiatives until 2020, as well as to lay down guidelines for the development of Lithuania’s energy sector until 2030 and until 2050.

The main goal of this Strategy is to ensure Lithuania’s energy independence before the year 2020 by strengthening Lithuanian’s energy security and competitiveness. Lithuania’s energy independence will ensure an opportunity to freely choose the type of energy resources and the sources of their supply (including local production) so that they best meet the state’s energy security needs and Lithuanian consumers’ interests to procure energy resources at the most favourable prices.
