Electricity provides us with heat, light and comfort. It is a resource, which has to be used responsibly. The modern trends show that more often customers want to generate green energy themselves.


The experience accumulated by Latvenergo allows to give valuable and practical recommendations on how to live more environment- and wallet-friendly.

New solutions

Latvenergo constantly develops new offers and solutions, diversifying the range of its services.

Environment around us

The Group's diverse environmental initiatives and achievements are highly appreciated both by experts in the sector, and the public.

Energy efficiency

Energy efficiency is one of the signposts of sustainability of Latvenergo. Latvenergo was the first company in the Baltics to establish an Energy Efficiency Centre back in 1997 and start to create awareness in society about the efficient use and management of energy sources to make Latvia more beautiful, environmentally and people-friendly every day. Over the years, the Energy Efficiency Centre has become a place where industry professionals come together to discuss and share experiences on the latest developments in the area of energy efficiency.

Today, when social responsibility towards the environment and sustainability is determined by international commitments and laws, energy efficiency requirements are also defined in both European Union and Latvian laws and regulations, covering a wide range of stakeholders – individuals, legal entities, energy producers and traders.

Energy efficiency requirements for different target groups are set out in a number of normative acts – the European Green Deal, Fit for 55, the Energy Efficiency Directive, the Energy Efficiency Law, etc.

The Energy Efficiency Centre team is convinced that actions and daily habits can reduce the spending of families on energy sources and help us protect and use our joint environmental resources reasonably. The competencies accumulated by Energy Efficiency Centre experts, years of research and the proven recommendations provided by them are regularly used by households, businesses, public administration bodies and educational institutions.

The Energy Efficiency Centre offers free one-to-one consultations, a wide range of information materials and the opportunity to attend various educational events, seminars and webinars organised by the Centre.

The Energy Efficiency Centre offers consultations on:

  • lighting, heating and ventilation solutions,
  • selection and efficient use of household electrical appliances,
  • use of renewable energy sources,
  • electric vehicles and charging options thereof,
  • innovative technologies to improve energy efficiency.

For students, we offer face-to-face workshops and online lessons in partnership with the Iespējamā misija school programme Dzīvei gatavs, while for educators we provide a variety of methodological materials and worksheets on energy efficiency, climate change, etc.

Companies are invited to educate their employees on energy efficiency by booking a guest lecture from an energy efficiency expert or by organising training with the strategy game Energo Pols, as well as by using an interactive e-learning course.

We also invite Elektrum customers to join the Energo Pulss programme, which allows them to compare electricity consumption in their home with similar households in Latvia and get personalised recommendations for improving the energy efficiency of their home.

In recent years, we can hear the combination of words “climate change” at every turn, and this issue is on the agenda of politicians around the world. What is the contribution of Latvenergo, a company, for which care of the surrounding environment is one of cornerstones of sustainable development, in order to operate in a more climate-friendly manner?

Latvenergo AS has already accomplished a lot and continues activities to improve efficiency and increase the use of RES, thus reducing CO2 emissions, and on its own initiative supports replenishment of fish resources, makes artificial spawning nests for fish and cleans rivers in cooperation with environment experts, biologists and hydrobiologists.

Each year Latvenergo releases more than 8 million juvenile fish of various species – Baltic salmon, sea trout, zander, whitefish, pike and lamprey – in the Daugava River basin.

Placement of artificial spawning nests for fish in hydropower plant reservoirs facilitates preservation and replenishment of fish stocks; therefore, each year artificial fish spawning nests made by more than 400 employees of Latvenergo Group are placed in the Daugava River near Ikšķile and Kaibala, in which at least 20 million fish eggs are spawned.

Over several years many tributaries of the Daugava River have suffered from fallen trees, beaver dams, fords created by deposits and water plants; therefore, an initiative for cleaning of rivers of the Daugava River basin was initiated in 2017 - the Vedze River was cleaned from deposits and fallen trees, and a project of cleaning the Pērse River continues.

Latvenergo generates electricity at its power plants with zero (at hydropower plants) or the lowest amounts of CO2 emissions (at combined heat and power plants). Daugava HPPs with zero emissions ensure the status of Latvia as a green country, whereas the reconstruction of CHPPs has allowed to achieve the lowest amounts of emissions.

Active users

Modern technologies allow electricity users to become active market participants, who generate, consume and sell to others the generated, but not consumed electricity.

Currently, the role of energy consumers in the world and in Latvia changes. At the moment, increasingly more customers turn from passive electricity recipients into active users, who generate green energy by using solar panels, selling the energy accumulated by electric vehicle batteries, but not consumed by themselves, and using the opportunities offered by micro network, thus engaging in the market.
