The aim of the paper is to review the newest EU energy efficiency policies and Lithuanian attempts to implement these policies. The paper analyses the newest EU policy documents on energy efficiency and reviews Lithuanian energy consumption and energy efficiency development trends. The Lithuanian energy savings targets and progress achieved in implementing these targets were assessed.
