The Lithuanian government’s decision to title the landmark national energy transition strategy approved last summer in its parliament, the Seimas, as an “energy independence” plan carried with it an expressly double meaning – and could spell a sizeable opportunity for investors when it launches its first technology-neutral tender this year.
