Latvia

Lead Partner: Baltic Environmental Forum

The study will quantify the potential of biomass for energy production, and consider interlinkages with the Nexus components water, food and climate in the context of climate change. Policy priorities relate to low-carbon energy and climate change mitigation Latvia has a high potential for renewable energy, but remains largely dependent on imported fossil fuels and electricity. Strategic objective is to promote use of renewable energy sources (e.g., solid biomass, biogas) for energy production. The interdisciplinary approach will evaluate abatement costs of different energy policies, and their impacts on water, air, biodiversity, land use and future climate change. The Ministries of Economy, Environmental Protection and Regional development, and Agriculture are involved, as well as regional energy agencies.
