Paulius Butkus elected as Amber Grid’s Chairman of the Board

Paulius Butkus, Member of the Board of Lithuania’s natural gas transmission operator Amber Grid has been elected as Chairman of the Board. Mr Butkus is also the Head of Group Development and Innovation at the state-owned group of energy transmission and exchange companies EPSO-G.

“The energy sector is on a transformation path: the National Energy Independence Strategy is due to be adopted this year, as well as the corporate strategy of the EPSO-G group of companies until 2035 and the guidelines until 2050,” said Mr Butkus. “Amber Grid has a key role to play in implementing Lithuania’s energy vision, both in ensuring the reliability and security of the transmission network, in further integrating biomethane into the network, and in developing the green hydrogen corridor with Nordic and Baltic partners. The company has already laid the foundations for the development of green energy, so it is crucial to keep up the momentum and to explore new opportunities together to strengthen the energy security of the country and the region.”

With nearly ten years of experience in the energy sector, Mr Butkus spent four years as Head of the Strategy and Stakeholder Management Team at ENTSO-E, the Brussels-based European Network of Transmission System Operators, prior to joining the EPSO-G group. At the Network, he was responsible for cooperation with international institutions, contributing to the European Commission’s innovation funding programmes and initiating international projects.
