The Government of Lithuania has signed a cooperation agreement to transfer renewable energy to Luxembourg.

Signed in line with the European Commission’s (EC) Renewable Energy Directive, the agreement will see Luxembourg receives enough clean energy between 2018 and 2020 to meet its 2020 national renewable energy target of 11%.

In 2015, the country achieved a 5% renewable energy share in its gross final energy consumption, while Lithuania achieved 25.75%, exceeding its national renewable energy target by 2.75%.

“Cooperation can help Europe tap renewable energy potential in more cost-effective ways.”

The EC’s energy director-general Dominique Ristori said: “It sets a good example for other Member States to take advantage of the cooperation possibilities established under the Renewable Energy Directive.

“Looking into the future, this shows that strengthened cooperation can help Europe tap renewable energy potential in more cost-effective ways, which is particularly important given Europe’s more ambitious renewable energy target of at least 27% for 2030, as proposed in the Clean Energy Package.”
