Baltic Energy Network 2019

Baltics Energy Network – Synchronisation, Stabilisation and Upgrade – Creating future-proof energy grid through optimisation, reinforcement and extension

Date: 4thJune 2019
Venue: Vilnius Tech Park, Vilnius, Lithuania

Conference background:

A political agreement on the Baltic power grids’ synchronization with the Continental European system marks Lithuania’s final step toward full energy independence and integration into Europe, as President Dalia Grybauskaitė said. According to the Joint Research Center operating at the European Commission, the best way to synchronize the power systems of the Baltic States with continental Europe is through two strands of LitPol Link, which is expected to cost 770-960 million euros. In the case of synchronization by one thread, the cost will amount to 900 million euros. The cost of synchronising the Baltic States with the Scandinavian countries is estimated at 1,36-1,41 billion euros. The conference will cover the next necessary steps, including technical and investments issues, for full synchronisation of the Lithuanian and European energy grid.
