The projects that have been implemented by JSC ENG comply with Lithuania’s sustainable development priorities set in the National Strategy for Sustainable Development (Official Gazette, 2003 No. 89-4029), those being a reduction of the impact of the main economic activities on the environment, a reduction of risk to human health, and the mitigation of global climate change and its consequences.


1) The technology installed in the combined heat and power plant during the implementation of the project Installation of High Efficiency Combined Heat and Power Plant in Pasvalys District Boiler Plant, Musos str. 16, Pasvalys is recognized as one of the “cleanest” from an environmental point of view on the basis of the European Parliament and Council Directive 2004/8/EC of 11th February 2004, on the promotion of cogeneration based on a useful heat demand in the internal energy market and amending Directive 92/42/EEC.


2)  After the construction of the new segment of the Elektrenai–Vievis route during the project Utilization of waste heat for the heating of Vievis combining Elektrenai and Vievis regional heat supply networks, the waste thermal energy from the Lithuanian power plant used for the needs of Vievis not only allows for the increase in the overall efficiency of power generation, but also a reduction in thermal energy outflow to the Elektrenai Reservoir directly resulting in the lower consumption of fossil fuel, i.e. natural gas. Since climate changes are mostly associated with the generation of energy, the thermal properties of the new heat transfer pipelines installed during the project and the use of waste thermal energy for the satisfaction of Vievis thermal energy needs enable a potential reduction in climate change and its effects on human health. 


3) The project Reconstruction of Garliava district boiler plant installing technological equipment burning bio-fuel for the generation of heat complies with the national energy development priorities set with the intention to promote energy generation from regional renewable resources. By 2020, Lithuania has to increase a part of the energy generated from renewable resources by up to 23 percent in total energy consumed, while the new bio-fuel facility installed in Garliava boiler plant should reduce about 2.6 million nm3 of natural gas per year burned in the boiler plant until then.
