Baltic countries reduced imports of electricity from Russia

Russian electricity in the Baltic countries will be less than 10%. The operators of the Baltic electricity networks Elering, AST and Litgrid have reduced the capacity for imports from Russia to 300 megawatts with a consumption of up to 4000 megawatts.

"The purpose of reducing the throughput is to ensure the reliability of the electric power system of the Baltic countries even in the event of an emergency desynchronization of the network with Russia and Belarus' power grids", the Estonian operator Elering said in a statement.

"Electricity can be sold from the main territory of Russia both to the Latvian price zone of the electricity exchange with a capacity of up to 150 MW, and from Kaliningrad to the Lithuanian zone with a capacity of up to 150 MW. It is still impossible to sell electricity directly from Russia to Estonia", the company's press-service notes.

The Baltic countries plan to move away from "energy independence from Russia" by 2025.
