On April 2nd 2024 the president of the Association Osvaldas Čiukšys, and member of the board of the Association and director of the Lithuanian Institute of Energy Sigitas Rimkevičius participated in the Lithuanian Radio broadcast regarding the future of nuclear energy in Lithuania. The broadcast was arranged right after the presentation of the new Lithuanian energy independence strategy where it's foreseen that nuclear energy can take 20-30 per cent of the domestic energy generation. There were many arguments presented against and in favour of the sector development. It is important to admit that 52 per cent of the listeners are voting in favour of new electricity generation technologies development in Lithuania, including nuclear energy.
