Abstract Therefore the main aim of the paper is to develop and present a roadmap for low carbon society with an overall aim to achieve independence from fossil fuels by 2050in Latvia. The paper also reviews current and the perspective development of energy system in the country. The results show that it is possible to create energy supply system in Latvia, which is based on renewable energy sources by 2050. A quantitative evaluation of the modelled scenarios is given based on energy demand and apprising energy related greenhouse gas emissions.
