Setting ambitious environmental targets has been a hallmark of European Union (EU) policy for decades. The European Commission’s strategy “A European Green Deal” aims to make the EU a climate-neutral continent by 2050. It also seeks to decouple the EU’s economic growth from the use of energy resources and restructure the economy so that net greenhouse gas emissions are zero. To achieve this vision and maintain the competitiveness of the EU industry, improving energy efficiency must become a priority for industrial policy in every EU State. To make this vision a reality, the EU plans to invest in environmentally friendly technologies, support innovative industry, reduce the energy sector’s dependence on fossil fuels and improve energy efficiency, among other measures.
In the context of the complex interrelationship between energy efficiency, environmental protection and industrial competitiveness, the question arises whether the competitiveness of energy-intensive industries in European countries can be reasonably assessed and compared. Therefore, the research aims to develop a conceptual model for the assessment of industrial competitiveness, including energy efficiency and climate change mitigation components, to develop an energy efficiency index for the assessment of industrial competitiveness based on this model and to apply it empirically to energy-intensive industries.
The empirical study carried out in this dissertation investigated the competitiveness of energy-intensive industries in 19 European countries, divided the countries studied into groups and identified the factors determining the competitiveness of the industries.
Lithuanian Energy Institute offers promising studies in the European Green Deal topics with great prospect of employment.

Lithuanian Energy Institute (LEI), with partners Lithuanian Research Centre for Agriculture and Forestry (LAMMC) and the Center for Physical Sciences and Technology (FTMC), invites you to participate in the 18th International Conference of Young Scientists on Energy and Natural Sciences Issues (CYSENI 2022). This year again the conference will be held online, from May 24 to 27, 2022.
By going online, we can deliver our core value to even greater audiences:
International Conference of Young Scientists on Energy and Natural Sciences Issues is an annual event aimed at young researchers and professionals from Europe and worldwide working in the fields of Energy, Physical and Environmental sciences. CYSENI seeks to provide a free and well-established platform to undergraduate, MSc, Ph.D. students, postdoc, entrant engineers and other young scientists to present their latest research, develop their skills, make new contacts and forge durable scientific relationships.
This conference is scheduled in the online format. It frees our resources and allows us to divert more efforts towards expanding the scope and increasing the conference’s reach.
This year, to attain these goals, LEI has has partnered with two other top-tier Lithuanian science institutions: LAMMC and FTMC. This partnership is built on years of previous cooperation on identified synergies of their research fields, and is reflected in an expanded list of Topics for the Conference.

To reduce emissions, it is necessary to replace conventional transport sector vehicles with internal combustion engines with alternative technologies driven on renewable energy sources (RES). Despite the environmental benefits of clean cars, the existing technical and economic barriers prevent their mass development. To raise the competitiveness and popularity of clean vehicles among consumers, the appropriate promotion policy instruments need to be applied. Despite the growing interest in the issues of promoting the use of RES-driven vehicles, scientific literature still lacks an empirically-based evaluation methodology that would allow to comprehensively evaluate particular promotion measures. Thus, the main purpose of the research in this dissertation is to develop the model and the methodology for evaluating RES-driven vehicle promotion measures that would allow to identify most relevant measures with consideration of consumer preferences, measure implementation costs, feasibility and efficiency. For evaluating promotion measure feasibility, efficiency and estimating evaluation criteria weights, the method of expert evaluation was employed. Consumer preferences were evaluated by employing discrete selection models. Promotion measure implementation costs were estimated by three electric vehicle market development scenarios. Aggregation of all the research indicators based on multi-criteria evaluation method allowed to identify the most relevant promotion measures in the case of Lithuania.

It is important to understand processes, to predict steady or changing situations, and to manage potential or unexpected accidents when a powerful industrial unit is operated. Passive cooling systems that do not require an external power source during critical situations and accidents are being installed or designed in advanced industrial facilities in order to prevent or minimise the potential consequences of such accidents. This issue is particularly relevant in nuclear power plants because the potential consequences of accidents at these facilities can be severe. Natural convection and thermal stratification phenomena, which occur in cooling pools of passive systems are closely interrelated and their behavior affects the safety of the installations. Currently, there is a growing interest in modelling of these phenomena using CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) software, however, these phenomena are modelled using a lot of simplifications. There is no detailed and complex modelling methodology for these phenomena available today or it has not been published.
This dissertation introduces the methodology for modelling of two-component two-phase natural convection and thermal stratification phenomena in a cooling pool using CFD software. The methodology can be applied for modelling of these phenomena, which occurs in power or industrial installations (in the cooling pool of the passive system, in the spent nuclear fuel pool, in the nuclear or chemical reactor, etc.), facility or installation safety assessment, development of accident management methodology, etc.
