The Baltic-Nordic Energy Research Conference

Nordic Energy Research welcomes everyone interested in Baltic-Nordic energy research and cooperation to the Baltic-Nordic Energy Research Conference. The conference is open to the public and will bring together all researchers involved in the Joint Baltic-Nordic Energy Research Programme, providing a unique opportunity to meet other researchers and energy sector stakeholders in the Baltic-Nordic region.

Facing several similar challenges in their future energy systems, the Joint Baltic-Nordic Energy Research Programme has inspired intra-Nordic and intra-Baltic energy research for eight years. Now, we would like to invite you to celebrate the results of nearly a decade of Baltic-Nordic Energy Research collaboration.

The Baltic-Nordic Energy Research Programme

To mark the longevity of the Nordic Baltic collaboration, the conference will promote research and policy results from previous Calls. The programme has funded nine unique Baltic-Nordic Energy projects within the following thematic scope:

Decarbonisation of the transport sector
Energy Efficiency in buildings and industries
Energy system analysis
Challenges and opportunities for regional electricity grids

Furthermore, programme has funded the following reports centred on Baltic-Nordic cooperation in energy and energy research:

Baltic-Nordic Roadmap for Co-operation on Clean Energy Technologies (2022)
Heat Pump Potential in the Baltic States (2021)
Transport Statistical Data and Projections in The Baltic States (2020)

European Innovation Council Baltic Info Day

Join us at the first ever European Innovation Council Baltic Info Day

In collaboration with European Innovation Council (EIC) and Lithuanian Innovation Centre we are organizing EIC Baltic Info Day dedicated to start-ups, businesses and higher education insitutions. For the first time, you will have a  a unique opportunity to directly meet with representatives, experts, and professionals from the EIC.

During the event, you will learn about the opportunities provided by the EIC (Pathfinder, Transition, Accelerator), hear the success stories and will have a chance to ask all the burning questions – how to get the funding for your innovative ideas?

The event will take place on the 16th of April at the „Hilton Garden Inn“, Gedimino ave. 44B, Vilnius.

Registration is open until 12 p. m. on April 15th. Participation is free, but the number of places is limited.

Fostering EU Clean Energy transition in Lithuania, SUPEERA/PANTERA workshop

Fostering EU Clean Energy transition in Lithuania, SUPEERA/PANTERA workshop

Date: 27 April 2023
Time: 9:00 – 17:00
Location: Lithuanian Academy of Science, Gedimino pr. 3, 01103 Vilnius, Lithuania


Register to the workshop


Lithuania is actively working towards the success of the energy transition objectives and implementation of declared policies for achieving the low carbon economy. Yet, together with other less involved countries it shows low participation rates in research and innovation (R&I) activities and the realisation of the European Union’s Strategic Energy Technology (SET) Plan Implementation Plans. As a consequence, and compared to more successful Member States it has received only a marginal contribution of EU R&I Horizon 2020’s budget.

In this context, SUPEERA and PANTERA are joining forces with the objective to enhance collaboration in R&I activities in Lithuania, facilitate knowledge exchange and showcase best practices of how international networking and cooperation between national stakeholders and key international associations and organisations can be beneficial for establishing long-lasting interactions and fostering joint R&I activities.

Therefore, this workshop will offer a detailed overview of the European policies, strategies, EU funding programmes and collaboration opportunities at the disposal to the research community of Lithuania with the aim to bringing them closer to the R&I activities of Europe and get active with the SET Plan process. Meanwhile, the invited experts and stakeholders will share their experience in the project implementation.


Discussion Topics

2nd CERN Baltic Conference (CBC 2022)

CBC 2022 conference banner

The 2nd CERN Baltic Conference (CBC 2022) to be held in National Centre of Physical and Technological Sciences (FTMC) in Vilnius, Lithuania on October 10-12, 2022. It is an annual conference organised by the CERN Baltic Group (CBG), where location is rotated within CBG member countries and hosting institutions.
Lithuanian Energy Institute also takes part in CERN Baltic Group’s activities. On our behalf we invite researchers, engineers, students (of all levels), and industrial representatives as well as stakeholders of the Baltic states to participate in the event.

Goals and Objectives

In the spirit of CBG principles (transparency, honesty, sharing and collaboration), the Conference has set the following objectives:

The Conference aims to gather the Baltic scientists and research institutions, and to help organizing activities towards the long-term mission, such as that of CERN and related collaborations/experiments.

The Scope and Topics

The scientific and technical CERN Baltic Conference covers the full spectrum of CERN and related activities (e.g. research, engineering, computing, industrial, and policy).

Topics are related, but not limited to: Accelerator, Detector and other Advanced Technologies, High Energy Physics, Data Science and Computing, Nuclear Medicine. From physics to engineering, from fundamental science to industry. Topics will be logically linked to the CBG activities within the CERN collaborations, experiments and studies: such as CMS, CLIC, FCC, MEDICIS, AEGIS, CLOUD, and others.

Target Audience and Participants

CERN-related researchers, engineers, students (of all levels), and industrial representatives (incl. CERN Industrial Liaison Officers of EE, LT, and LV) as well as stakeholders of the Baltic states.

Expert speakers form CERN and CBG Member institutions will be invited to participate and to contribute to the each of the topics.

Adolfas Jančauskas doctoral thesis defense

Author, Institution: Adolfas Jančauskas, Kaunas University of Technology

Dissertation title: Reduction of nitrogen and sulfur compound emissions in biofuel boilers using combined methods

Science area, field of science: Technological Sciences, Energetics and Power Engineering, T006

Defense of the dissertation: 2021-04-16, 10:00 a.m., Lithuanian Energy Institute (room – AK-330), Breslaujos st. 3, Kaunas, Lithuania.

Scientific Supervisor: Assoc. Prof. Dr. Kęstutis Buinevičius (Kaunas University of Technology, Technological Sciences, Energetics and Power Engineering, T006).

Dissertation Defence Board of Energetics and Power Engineering Science Field:

The doctoral dissertation defence will take place in hybrid mode. Link to the online conference call:

The doctoral dissertation is available on the internet and at the library of Kaunas University of Technology (K. Donelaičio g. 20, Kaunas).

The prevailing technologies for boiler flue gas desulphurisation and denitrification are selective. The combined impact on the reduction of overall emissions of biofuel reciprocating grate boilers has not been sufficiently studied. This dissertation is intended to determine the combined effects of primary and secondary measures on nitrogen and sulfur emissions. Experimental studies were carried out in industrial boilers (4 – 12 MW) and research stands (20 kW) of similar design and operating conditions, burning wood and waste of agricultural, industrial and animal origin. Selective non-catalytic reagents (NH3, (NH2)2CO), solid reagent (CaO), flue gas recirculation, excess air and combination of these measures on flue gas NO2, N2O, NH3, HCN, SO2, SO3 and H2S emissions were determined. Flue gas recirculation and insufficient excess air have been found to reduce NO, NO2, NH3, SO3 and H2S emissions but increase SO2, HCN and N2O emissions. These methods must therefore be combined with additional desulphurisation measures. Experimental measurements also showed that selective non-catalytic reagent ((NH2)2CO) reduces not only NO, NO2, but also SO2 and H2S concentrations in biofuel combustion products. The dissertation presents a methodology for the calculation of NOx and SO2 concentrations in flue gas based on the results of experimental research, which allows for the optimal selection of emission reduction measures.
