According to the data of electricity transmission system operator Litgrid, the aggregate amount of electricity generated in Lithuania somewhat declined.

Last year, in January-September, Lithuania's power plants generated 2,570.7 GWh of electricity.

Wind farms should enjoy successful results in late 2014, their electricity output may grow several times due to stronger winds. In the last three months of 2013, wind farms generated almost half (48.8 percent or 292.9 GWh) of their yearly electricity production. Throughout 2013 electricity production by wind farms reached 599.99 GWh or 6 percent of the total amount consumed in Lithuania.
