Representatives of Lithuania and Poland are meeting on Wednesday in Warsaw to discuss important bilateral energy projects. The meeting will focus on the synchronization of the power networks, a new gas link and green energy.
“The key issues will include the progress of the synchronization of the Baltic power networks with that of continental Europe and the upcoming moves. Also, the existing situation will be discussed, related to the implementation of the Gas Interconnection Poland–Lithuania (GIPL) project,” the Lithuanian Energy Ministry told BNS Lithuania.
Cooperation in the area of green energy will also be discussed in Poland, as well as Poland’s draft policy strategy until 2040. Lithuania will be represented by Vice Minister of Energy Egidijus Purlys.
The Baltic states’ power networks are scheduled to be synchronized with continental Europe by 2025, and the existing Lithuanian-Polish LitPol Link as well as a new submarine link will be used for that.
The GIPL project is due to come online in 2021.
