Gerimantas BAKANAS | AB Vilniaus šilumos tinklai


of Vilnius district heating company (AB Vilniaus šilumos tinklai)


Guided by our two core principles – courage to act and commitment to the planet, we do not limit ourselves merely to be the largest provider of heating and hot water in Lithuania.

We aim to transform the concept of being an energy company.


Gerimantas is the CEO of Vilnius district heating company (AB Vilniaus šilumos tinklai) and has a decade of extensive experience with large corporations in service, energy, and manufacturing spheres, in both public and private equity.

In Gerimantas portfolio, one can find numerous strategic projects that forever transformed the landscape of energy and logistics in Lithuania. He was part of the team that supervised the LNG terminal’s successful launch in Klaipeda and was crucial to the transformation of the national railway system into the 21st century.

Together with the talented people in Vilnius DHC, he coordinates a unique project – an open platform for generating and developing intelligent energy ideas in the city of Vilnius.

Topics that he will passionately discuss with the fellow intelligent energy advocates include management of turnaround in large organizations, tips and tricks of cultivating open spaces for grassroots initiatives, what does it feel like to live in the 3rd greenest city in the world (at least by HUGSI ranking), and many more. Catch him at the 40th Euroheat & Power Congress, and he will tell an amazing story of how he and his team made trains in Lithuania run faster without much technological effort!
