Renewable energy – Energy Country Profile

Renewable Energy

Lithuania set 23% target as the share of renewables in final energy consumption in the National Renewable Energy and Climate Action Plan. This goal has been exceeded since 2016 (24.4% in 2018) thanks to the contribution of the heating sector (45.6%), 18.4% in power generation and 4.4% in transport (data from 2018).

The National Energy and Climate Plan aims to reach 45% of renewables in final consumption in 2030 and 80% by 2050. Therefore, wind capacity should double between 2020 and 2030 and solar capacity should grow five-fold. Wind should account for at least 55% of renewable power generation in 2030 and 65% in 2050 and solar for 24% in 2030. To facilitate the uptake of renewables, Lithuania aims to have over 500 000 “prosumers” by 2030.
