ABSTRACT
The main consumers of energy and the main sources of pollutants in Lithuania are transport, industry, the energy transformation sector, agriculture, households and the services sector. The problems of activities in the energy sector, aimed at the protection of the environment, are: 1. Reduction of pollutants from thermal power stations and heat plants. 2. Development of renewable energy sources. 3. The increase of energy efficiency. 4. Rationalization of the combustion process by using less pollutant fuels. Every state must implement the energy policy allowing energy supply to consumers at reasonable prices. Lithuanian scientists and experts must contribute to solving these problems. The national scientific program is ongoing in Lithuania. The purpose of this program is to investigate the problems and to create scientific preconditions for a sustainable energy development, for increasing energy security, reducing energy intensity, ensuring the rational usage of indigenous and renewable energy sources and reduction of harmful pollutants.
