Institutional support for the energy and environment policy in Latvia
In this paper, we describe institutional support for the energy and environmental policy in Latvia. This includes large state institutions, sector administration and main functions. The main connections between energy and environmental institutions are defined. We describe the scientific institutions providing research on energy and environmental policy and, in particular, the research carried out at the Institute of Physical Energetics of the Latvian Academy of Science and at the Riga Technical University.
