Summary / Abstract:

ENLithuania’s energy security is inseparable from the country’s membership in the EU and NATO. As a small state with little domestic resources and almost completely dependent on external suppliers, Lithuania is very interested in multilateral energy cooperation. Therefore the first part of this article is an overview of the development of the EU’s common energy policy’s external dimension and NATO energy initiatives. We present a chronological outline of the most important developments, distinguish the main goals, problems and possible solutions. The second part of the article explores Lithuania’s interests and achievements in creating the EU Common Energy Policy and formulating a NATO energy strategy. The focus is on Lithuania’s achievements and failures during the EU Presidency, also on the importance of the NATO Energy Security Centre of Excellence and its possible impact on energy security.
