Lithuania to allocate over 22 million euros for biomethane projects

Lithuania’s Ministry of Energy plans to allocate 22.2 million euros to support the production of biomethane, considered one of the greenest alternatives to replace natural gas in various industries and reduce energy prices.

For now, Lithuania plans to use biomethane mainly in the transport sector and in those companies that have a high consumption of natural gas.

The use of biomethane will also help solve the issue of waste management, creating an added value for local communities and promoting the development of a circular economy. 

According to the Ministry’s plan, Lithuania should produce at least 950 gigawatt-hours (GWh) of biomethane by 2030.

Projects all around the country can apply to get some State compensation and receive subsidies until the end of September 2022 and all the projects must have to be implemented by the end of 2025.
