Available studies show that renewable energy is associated with significant gross in job creation. Net effects are generally also shown to be positive. They will also vary across countries depending on the level of job losses elsewhere in the economy and the opportunity costs of deploying renewable energy. In making such an assessment, it is important to be clear as to which effects are attributable solely to an increase in renewable energy and which are caused by other factors. The paper applies the results of EU studies. The aim of the paper is to address the EU policy for promotion of renewable energy sources and to assess the impact of renewables on employment The paper analyses EU policies aiming to promote the use of renewable energy sources in EU and evaluates of achievements in implementing policies to promote renewables in Lithuania. The case study of Lithuania was developed seeking to assess policies aiming at promotion of renewables, to evaluate deployment of renewables and the impact of renewables on creation of green jobs in Lithuania.
