Institutions & Energy Policy
The Ministry of Energy is responsible for the energy sector.
An Energy Agency was created in 1993 to overcome the difficulties faced by the country in terms of energy: poor energy efficiency, few energy resources and a strong dependence on Russia for its energy supply (90%).
National gas company Lietuvos Dujos was unbundled in 2013 through the creation of an independent gas transmission company, Amber Grid; two companies dedicated to gas supply (Lietuvos Dujos Tiekimas) and gas distribution (Lietuvos Dujos) were spun off and transferred to Lietuvos Energija in 2014.
Lithuania imports all its natural gas (2.4 bcm in 2018). The gas is imported from Russia by pipe (1.3 bcm in 2018) and as LNG from Norway (1.1 bcm in 2018).
A 4 bcm/year floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU) was commissioned in Klaipeda in 2014.
Regulated prices for households are controlled by the National Control Commission for Prices and Energy (VKEKK). Electricity prices more than doubled between 2000 and 2013, but have been declining since then: by 4.5%/year for industry between 2013 and 2018 (8% lower than the EU average in 2018) and by 3.8%/year for households (47% lower than the EU average).
Total energy consumption per capita is 2.7 toe, and around 4000 kWh for electricity (2018); those consumption rates are 14% and 28% below the EU average, respectively.

Issues & Prospects
According to Litgrid's forecasts, total electricity consumption should increase by an average 1%/year between 2016 and 2026, reaching 13 TWh. The capacity should decrease by 670 MW to 2.9 GW in 2026. More than 1 GW of thermal power plants should be decommissioned (600 MW at Elektrenai to be stopped in 2023, and nearly 480 MW at three CHP plants).

In the Lithuania energy market report you will find the following tables:
- Economic Indicators: Annual historical data including population, GDP growth, imports and exports, inflation rate, energy security and efficiency indicators, CO2 emissions.
- Supply Indicators: Historical data including oil and gas reserves, electric and refining capacity, energy production, power production and external trade. All are detailed by energy source
- Demand Indicators: Historical data including consumption per inhabitant, consumption trends, total consumption by energy source, final consumption by energy source and sector, and electricity consumption by sector.
- Energy Balances: Single table displaying the overall energy industry balance per annum, also graphically displayed by energy sub-segment.
- Infrastructure Projects: Covers power plant projects by energy, technology, status and operator, gas plant projects by status and operator and LNG contracts.
The Lithuania energy market data since 1990 and up to 2018 is included in the Excel file accompanying the Lithuania country report.
It showcases the historical evolution, allowing users to easily work with the data.
Key Data included in the excelsheet:
- Economic indicators: Annual historical economic indicators, energy security, energy efficiency and CO2 emissions.
- Supply indicators: Annual historical reserves, capacity, production and external trade (imports(+) exports(-) balance).
- Demand indicators: Annual historical consumption per capita, consumption trends, total consumption, final consumption (per energy and per sector) and electricity consumption total and per sector.
- Energy Balance: total and per energy.
- Lithuania Energy Prices: In addition to the analysis provided on the report we also provided a data set which includes historical details on the Lithuania energy prices for the follow items: price of premium gasoline (taxes incl.), price of diesel (taxes incl.), price of electricity in industry (taxes incl.), price of electricity for households (taxes incl.), price of natural gas in industry (taxes incl.), prices of natural gas for households (taxes incl.), spot price of Brent and CO2 emissions (from fuel combustion).
