    This article examines the intersection differing the supremacy of law, the effectiveness of the protection of the financial interests of the European Union, and the principles of legality the same as predictability of the law in EU criminal law. The authors analyze the jurisprudence of the Court of Justice, assessing cases where the principle of the supremacy of EU law is applied to ensure the effective protection of the Union’s financial interests and where the ECJ imposes mandatory exceptions to this principle for national courts. In order to strike a balance between the principles of effectiveness and legal predictability, different liability conditions are assessed for a natural person and a Member State that fails to fulfill its obligation to protect the EU’s financial interests.

    With the enactment of the Lisbon Treaty, EU law gained supremacy over national law in ten areas of criminal law (with the possibility of extension in the future) treated as particularly serious crimes with a cross-border dimension and the right to enact directives. The question arises if and when direct effect is possible in criminal law, taking account of developments and applications of this principle in other areas of EU law. To answer this question, the following tasks are necessary: (1) to discuss the role of principles in criminal law, (2) to define the principle of direct effect through the academic literature and the jurisprudence of the CJEU, (3) to discuss whether directives could have direct effect in criminal law, and (4) to analyze the EU’s impact on Lithuanian national criminal law through an analysis of the jurisprudence of the Supreme Court of Lithuania.

    Further increases in the number of photovoltaic installations in industry and residential buildings will require technologically and economically flexible energy storage solutions. Some countries utilize net-metering strategies, which use national networks as “virtual batteries.” Despite the financial attractiveness, net-metering faces many technological and economical challenges. It could also lead to the negative tendencies in prosumer behavior, such as a decrease in motivation for the self-consumption of photovoltaic (PV)-generated electricity. Batteries, which are installed on the prosumer’s premises, could be a solution in a particular case. However, the price for battery-based storage solutions is currently sufficiently unattractive for the average prosumer. This paper aimed to present a comparison of the economic and energy related aspects between net-metering and batteries for a single case study by considering the Lithuanian context. The net present value, degree of self-sufficiency, internal rate of return, payback time, and quantified reduction of carbon emission were calculated using a specially developed Prosumer solution simulation tool (Version 1.1, Delloite, Madrid, Spain) for both the PV and net-metering and PV and batteries cases. The received results highlight that the battery-based energy storage systems are currently not an attractive alternative in terms of price where net-metering is available; a rather radical decrease in the installation price for batteries is required.

    The European arrest warrant system is one of the greatest achievements in the development of cooperation in judicial matters among EU Member States. However, its implementation has raised many questions, resulting in referrals by national courts to the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) for preliminary rulings. This article analyses the impact of the CJEU’s preliminary rulings on Lithuanian law concerning European arrest warrants. Specifically, the focus of the paper is institutional configuration and corresponding regulation in this field because/after the CJEU decided that (1) the Ministry of Justice cannot be considered a judicial authority because as part of the executive branch it cannot guarantee the protection of the parties’ fundamental rights; (2) however, the Prosecutor General of Lithuania can be considered a judicial authority because it participates in the administration of criminal justice and is independent of executive governance, and because its decisions to issue European arrest warrants are subject to judicial review.

    In recent years, the use of photovoltaic-based distributed electricity generation has played a key role in achieving climate and energy policy goals. The energy market is changing rapidly from centralized generation towards unbundling generation, transmission, distribution, and supply activities. As energy consumers also become producers, a new energy market player—the prosumer—is emerging. The role of the prosumer as a market player can be analyzed in terms of implemented technological solutions, economic assessment, environmental impact, and legal regulation requirements. The aim of this article is to investigate the importance and compatibility of energy prosumers with energy justice theory in the context of European Union (EU) law. The authors concluded first that an energy prosumer will help to meet energy justice goals only if government ensures support for generation facilities for low-income consumers, as only then can intrageneration equity be achieved. Second, seeking to ensure equality among places with different energy sources, the government should promote the development of generation facilities using different renewable energy sources. Third, the short-term electricity market, which may allow energy prosumers to participate, should be developed.

    As the Charter of Fundamental Rights establishes the right to data protection as a separate right for privacy, the Regulation on Data Protection aims mainly at finding balance between the right to data protection and freedom of expressions. Also, it aims at creating the uniform legal environment of data protection in all Member States. The Regulation on Data Protection is applicable to the judicial authority, however with certain exceptions. The Regulation on Data Protection remains silent on the requirement to anonymize courts decisions. However, the Regulation on Data Protection give the single definition of personal data for all EU, and we assume that it can standardize the data which is anonymized in court decisions. The aim of the article is to analyze the impact of the EU Regulation on Data Protection to the rules on anonymization of court decisions in Lithuania. The research led us to the conclusion that in Lithuania the existing regulation on the anonymization of the decisions of courts does not reach its aim. Lithuanian rules on anonymization of courts decisions require anonymizing all courts decisions by default. This requirement shows that Lithuania gives the highest priority to the protection of privacy but not the freedom of expression. However, the aim of the anonymization is not reached while the Lithuanian rule requires anonymizing the exhaustive list of personal data, which includes not all data by which directly or indirectly the person can be identified.

    This section of the book is devoted to the presentation of a basic temporal (diachronic) and systematic (synchronic) overview of the legal system of Lithuania. Two dimensions are covered from the diachronic perspective. The first one is a retrospective or historical overview of the historical development of Lithuanian law from the medieval period, covering the monumental Statutes of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania, to the major law-related events of contemporary Lithuania. The second diachronic perspective is a prospective overview in which the perspectives of the future development of Lithuanian law in the major legal fields (such as constitutional, labor, civil, procedural, and so forth) are presented and analyzed. The synchronic overview of Lithuanian law also proceeds in two dimensions. The first one is devoted to the presentation of the system of law “from inside” by surveying the basic aspects of the system of Lithuanian courts and some other institutions/officials (prosecutors, attorneys, notaries, and bailiffs) that play important roles in the implementation of justice. The second one focuses more on the influences to the system “from outside,” although with a hybrid angle. First, the Lithuanian legal system is positioned in the larger domains of international law and the law of the European Union. Subsequently, specific attention is paid to the insurance of state security through/by the system of law, where not only the dangers of an internal (focus to the system of internal affairs and police) but also those of an external (focus to the system of national defense) nature are covered.
