Pranešimų medžiaga

Lithuania and other Baltic States encounter certain challenges in their power sectors. The electricity markets of the Baltic countries are not efficient enough because they are small and have no power connections to the electricity markets of other EU Member States. The early closure of Ignalina Nuclear Power Plant increases a risk to the security of energy supply in the region. The development of regional co-operation and international integration would be the most beneficial solution in this situation. Hence the workshop Development of Electricity Markets and Security of Supply in the Baltic Sea Region is an initiative AMd to promote both processes, to share the experience, views and opinions as well as facilitate the decision making processes on the issues of vital
importance for the entire region.

Topics for discussion:

  1. Enlargement of the Baltic electricity market
  2. Development of interconnections in the region
  3. Forecasts of power and energy balances in the region

Conclusions of the workshop

Lietuvos Energija AB is the main company in the electricity sector of Lithuania functioning as the owner of electricity transmission grid (110-330kV), the system operator and the market operator. One of the main objectives of Lietuvos Energija is the integration of Lithuania˙s power system into the Western European electricity market along with the development of regional co-operation. Expansion of the transmission grid is planned in the near future by interconnecting it with the Polish electricity system. The Lithuanian-Polish interconnection project is of immense importance for the development of an integrated EU electricity market and for the improvement of the reliability of supply. By utilising the common capabilities of the power systems of the Baltic States, establishment of the Common Baltic Electricity Market needed for successful integration of the Baltic States into the electricity markets of Western Europe and the Nordic countries is projected. Moreover, the company is analysing the possibility to interconnect the power systems of Lithuania and Sweden (the SwindLit project) and is one of the partners of the joint project of Finland and the Baltic States AMd to construct a sea-cable link between the respective power systems (the Estlink project ). In its endeavours to properly and efficiently implement its functions, the company pays a lot of attention to technical and scientific progress, training of specialists and intensively implements scientific and technical innovations in its operations. The main shareholder of Lietuvos Energija AB is the government of Lithuania having control over 96.62% of its shares, the remaining 3.38% of the company˙s shares are held by other private shareholders.
