Abstract

The aim of the paper is to evaluate GHG emission reduction potential because of energy saving in households sector by applying behavioral changes. The main tasks of the paper are: to analyse GHG emissions and energy consumption trends Lithuanian household sector; to assess GHG emission reduction potential in household sector by changing population behavior; to define the main drivers of changes of human behavior towards sustainable consumption and sustainable lifestyles; to develop recommendation for new climate change mitigation policies targeting energy demand in Lithuania. The main research methodology is based on households’ surveys and autonomous registration of energy consumption by households. The main results of the paper addresses the comparison of climate change mitigation tools in terms of GHG emission abatement potential and costs. The evaluated GHG emission reduction potential because of energy saving in households sector of Lithuania makes about 5 Mt of CO2 per year at no costs.
