In the modern world, including the European Union, the Baltic States and Latvia, the power industry has a broad definition, area and content, several social life and economic existence, comfort and safety provision. It also covers the following segments: heat/thermal energy, transport/fuel, electricity, energy resources and their types, etc. More competent and wider synergy among different energy sectors and power industry and other areas provides the option to solve the global problems, for example, the mitigation of climate changes and the provision of energy sustainability by reducing the production of greenhouse gases, increasing the use of renewable energy sources, achieving higher energy efficiency and providing the careful use of energy resources. The results of synergy are of economic importance; they provide the efficiency and competitiveness of costs. In this paper, the necessity of synergy between renewables and conventional generation and synergy among energy sectors are considered to achieve the dimensions of national energy and climate plans.
