Sector Overview

The strategic goal in the heating sector is consistent and balanced renovation (optimisation) of the centralised district heating supply systems, which ensures effective heating consumption, reliable, economically-attractive (competitive) supply and generation, provides a possibility for installation of state-of-the-art and green technologies, using local and renewable energy resources, ensures flexibility of the system and favourable investment climate.


Goals and objectives of the heating sector:
Goal 1: Reduction of heating energy prices and pollution, prioritising renewable and/or local resources in the balance of fuels used in heating generation.

Objectives of the Goal 1:

  • promotion of highly-efficient cogeneration to increase the volume of local competitive electricity generation;
  • reduction of pollution emitted by heating energy generation facilities and assurance of the development of technologies operating on renewable energy resources;
  • establishment of transparent rules for planning and regulation of the development of centralised heating supply systems.

Goal 2: Reduction of heating transmission losses.

Objective of the Goal 2: Assurance of reliable and quality heating transmission through modernisation of obsolete heating transmission networks.

Goal 3: Promotion of trade on the energy resources exchange.

Objective of the Goal 3: Diversification of generation of local and renewable energy resources.


The development of the heating sector in Lithuania include the following goals:

  • centrally-supplied heating generated from renewable and local energy resources to account for 70 per cent of all centrally-supplied heating by 2020;
  • centrally-supplied heating generated from renewable and local energy resources to account for 90 per cent of all centrally-supplied heating by 2030;
  • centrally-supplied heating generated from renewable and local energy resources to account for 100 per cent of all centrally-supplied heating and minimum 90 per cent of buildings in the cities to be supplied with heating from the central heating supply systems by 2020.
