The Baltic states are looking forward to the wind
By Armanda Vilciņa
In the coming years, all the Baltic states are set to increase their share of renewable energy in final consumption: Latvia plans to reach 50%, Lithuania 45%, and Estonia at least 42% by 2030.
According to information provided by the respective ministries of the Baltic states, increasing the capacity of energy from renewable sources is one of the priorities for the period up to 2030 and beyond. For this reason, several renewable energy projects are planned to be implemented in this region in the coming years, with the highest expectations being placed on wind. Development of renewable energy resources is a crucial element in strengthening the region's energy security and developing a climate-neutral economy based on the well-being, sustainability and competitiveness of its citizens, according to Latvia’s Ministry of Economics.
