  • The country targets a share of 45% of renewables in final consumption in 2030 and 80% in 2050.
  • Ignitis is the main energy company through stakes in various power and gas companies.
  • Most of the power supply is imported (82% in 2019).
  • Energy prices are lower than the EU averages (by around 30% for motor fuel and by 50% and 40%, respectively, for electricity and gas prices for households).
  • Total energy consumption has been increasing since 2015.
  • Lithuania is strengthening its power and gas interconnections with Poland, Sweden, and Latvia.
  • New capacities will be required to offset thermal plant decommissioning and to improve power independence.

  • 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%).

  • Energy Companies


    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.

  • Energy Supply


    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).

  • Energy Prices


    Gas prices for households have been decreasing by 7%/year since 2013 and for the industrial sector by 9%/year.

    Residential prices are much lower than the EU average (-41%).

  • Energy Consumption

    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


    In 2020, NERC approved Amber Grid's ten-year gas transmission network development plan; investments are expected to reach €229m between 2020 and 2025.
