Climate-neutral energy in Lithuania – how will green hydrogen, offshore wind and electric vehicles contribute?
Currently, around 27% of all energy consumed in Lithuania is produced using alternative energy sources. The European Union (EU) aims for a climate-neutral economy within its borders by 2050, with zero greenhouse gas emissions.
According to Daiva Garbaliauskaitė, Vice-Minister of the Ministry of Energy of the Republic of Lithuania, green hydrogen production, the development of an electric vehicle fleet, offshore wind energy development and prosumers will contribute to the transition to a climate-neutral economy in Lithuania.
Thirty years from now, this figure will have to reach 80%, the share of final energy consumption that Lithuania will have to produce itself, all of which must come from non-fossil sources. But can such an ambitious vision be realised in real terms, and what is needed to achieve it?
