Lithuanian energy strategy adopted

Government confirms plan for new nuclear power station by 2015, predicts growth in renewables

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.  The new nuclear power station will replace electricity generation capacity lost with the EU-enforced closure of the Soviet era Ignalina plant (EED 06/01/05).  Lithuania will aim for energy security and efficiency, sustainable development and competitiveness, the strategy says.  See press release and the strategy.
