Ambitious targets

In the next 10 years, Lithuania will be ready for the market of new energy - green hydrogen. The basis for this will be established significant capacities of renewable electricity planned to be developed by 2030, which will allow Lithuania to produce 90% and more of the required electricity from renewable energy sources. In this complex transformation project, Amber Grid will play a significant role in the creation of Lithuania’s hydrogen infrastructure. We aim to work as a catalyst, giving impulse to producers to connect with consumers, performing practical engineering actions, preparing for the transportation of domestically produced green hydrogen through Lithuania and creating rules for the market.

One of the important solutions to climate change is the production and application of green hydrogen in the energy, industry and transport sectors. Green hydrogen is called the one which is produced by electrolysis from renewable energy sources, such as electricity from the sun and wind, and enables to reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, significantly. 

In addition, the growth of renewable electricity generation and the generation might happen to be unstable, it will demand to balance the electricity flows.  Indeed, the hydrogen is the solution to balance and store green electricity. By converting surplus electricity into green hydrogen, it can be fed into the hydrogen transportation system, stored in hydrogen storages, and, if needed, can be used again to generate clean electricity, as a fuel for transport or as a raw material for a variety of industrial applications and production of synthetic fuels.
