GOAL of LithuaniaGOAL
In 2018 the new National Energy Independence Strategy of Lithuania has set the goal of producing all necessary electricity and heat energy from renewable and other non-polluting sources within 30 years. Wind power will make a significant contribution to the development of clean energy, with wind power plants becoming Lithuania’s main generator of electricity.
The strategy stipulates that energy produced in Lithuania in 2030 should account for 70 percent of total final electricity consumed. A total of 45 percent of electricity and 90 percent of heat energy will have to be produced from renewable energy sources.
In the long run – by 2050 – all necessary electricity will be produced internally, with 100 percent of electricity and heat being produced from renewable energy sources.
Renewables are estimated to account for 80 percent of total energy consumption in Lithuania.
