  No. 4. Lithuanian energy security challenges

2009 04 08

The shutdown of the 2nd block of the Ignalina Nuclear Power Plant (NPP) is planned on 31 December 2009. It is not yet clear on when and whether a new NPP would be constructed. According to estimations of the Energy Institute, by 2010 capacity of all power stations operating in the country would reach 2857 MW and meet the national demand. However, by 2015, i.e. the year of construction of a new Visaginas Nuclear Power Plant, Lithuania might experience lack of electric power. This might be predetermined by restricted energy import possibilities and insufficient capacities of the gas pipeline from Russia, which is sometimes referred to as an unreliable energy partner. Thus, situation in the Lithuanian energy sector is quite problematic and perspectives for its improvement are vague.
