Sector Overview

Sustainable development of energy from renewable sources is an important pillar of the energy policy aimed at reducing the dependence on imported fuels and fighting climate change. 

The strategic objectives set in recent years in the area of renewable energy sources (RES) have enabled a robust development of local energy generation capacities from renewable sources in Lithuania. Since 2007, the share of RES in the overall final energy consumption increased up to 25,83 percentage points in 2017. 

In 2017 Lithuania consumed 10,76 TWh of electricity, 3,86 TWh was produced domestically and more than 2 TWh were produced from RES.
