Energy system of Lithuania

Lithuania has witnessed several energy transitions over the past decade. With the closure of its only nuclear power plant, Lithuania switched from being a net exporter of electricity to being a net importer. Lithuania imports a large share of its electricity needs, while bioenergy is taking the lead in domestic energy supply. By 2030, Lithuania wants to reduce its electricity imports by half and produce 70% of its electricity needs from domestic sources. It plans to complete its synchronisation with the continental European power system by early 2025. Lithuania joined as the 31st IEA member country on 20 February 2022.
