Lithuania may overstep its 2020 renewable energy target
According to the energy progress report of the European Commission, there are good odds for the EU-wide target of 20 percent renewable energy in 2020 being reached. In 2014, the combined EU share of renewable energy reached 15,3 %.
The share of renewable energy in transport last year reached 5,7 %, which means that achieving the 10% target will be difficult but possible.
Based on data from the EU statistical office Eurostat, the share of renewable energy in Lithuania was 23 % in 2013 and the country is confident that the share of renewables will be at this level in 2020.
