The analyses of promotion of renewable energy sources and the measures to reduce emission of greenhouse gases in Lithuania

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The main goal of the report is to analyse the measures for promotion of use of renewable energy sources and the reduction of greenhouse gas emission in Lithuanian electricity sector. In the analysis of the application of measures to promote the use of RES in the electricity sector, theoretical presumptions and experience of use of such measures in Europe have been reviewed. Based on a thorough examination of using RES in the electricity sector, wind and biomass energy seem to have the largest RES potential in the Lithuanian electricity sector. Using hydro energy is bound by strict environmental norms that require an appropriate examination in order to be improved. Setting a green electricity feed-in tariff is considered the main measure to promote RES use in the Lithuanian electricity sector. The criteria of the feed-in tariff validity in Lithuania are not clearly identified and justified.
