The Lithuanian government has confirmed plans to build a new nuclear power station by 2015 in a new national energy strategy. The strategy predicts that the share of renewable energy and the use of biofuels will both increase by 20% by 2025.

Lithuania will aim for energy security and efficiency, sustainable development and competitiveness, the strategy says. See press release and the strategy.
