Date Confirmed for Lithuania’s Second Offshore Wind Tender

The Lithuanian government has confirmed that the country’s second offshore wind tender will be opened on 15 January 2024.

The tender was pushed back to January instead of this autumn after Lithuania’s Ministry of Energy received feedback from investors on the global renewable energy sector being affected by the current economic conditions.

Last month, the Ministry of Energy revealed its plans to open the country’s second offshore wind tender on 15 January 2024.
