VILNIUS (Reuters) – Lithuania last week successfully tested a coupling of its electricity grid to the European continental system, thereby boosting the country’s energy security, Energy Minister Dainius Kreivys said on Wednesday.
Lithuania plans to completely decouple from the Russian electricity grid by 2025, he added.
The test took place on Saturday, Lithuanian transport service operator Litgrid said.
“It can be said that on Sunday the three Baltic countries woke up safer than when they went to bed on Saturday evening,” Rokas Masiulis, Litgrid’s chief executive, told a press conference.
