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.
Apart from a marginal production of around 70 kt, Lithuania imports all its crude oil (9.6 Mt in 2019), mainly from Russia. It is refined at the Mazeikiai refinery which has a capacity of 15 Mt/year, and which operates at around 2/3 of its capacity. The country is a net exporter of oil products (7.4 Mt of exports for 0.9 Mt of imports in 2019).
Gasoline and diesel prices are following international trends. They declined between 2013 and 2016 by an average of 7%/year. They both recovered slightly in 2017 and 2018 and started decreasing again from 2018 to 1.10€/l and 1.01€/l, respectively, in 2020. They are close to prices in Poland, Latvia, and Estonia, and much lower than the EU average (-33% for diesel and -30% for gasoline).
Total energy consumption per capita is 2.8 toe, and around 4000 kWh for electricity (2019); those consumption rates are 10% and 27% 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).
