Since its establishment in 1998, the public institution Energy Saving Facilites (ESF) has focused on spreading awareness of the environmental ideas. The Renewable Energy Exposition and producing of environmental films and TV programmes are two major branches of our work.
The PI Renewable Energy Exposition was established in the renovated Small Conservatory building at the Verkiai Mansion complex in 2002. Presentations and lectures are regularly held here for visitor groups of each age.
Dalia Juočerytė and Rimantas Baltruška, the main members of the TV creative group, had started producing their first environmental videos at the Lithuanian national television facilities before ESF was established.
During this period 7 different TV programmes had been created, almost 900 episodes in total.
Currently the environmental programme “Start From Yourself” is produced for LRT Culture channel of the national broadcaster. The main topic covered are nature and heritage conservation, environmental activities in different communities, work of famous naturalists. We also cooperate with the Press, Radio & TV Support Foundation.
