Energy Minister Krzysztof Tchorzewski says that the project for synchronizing the Baltic power grids with the continental European network will be implemented, but that requires a final agreement among the three Baltic nations.

"We are determined to implement the project to synchronize the grids. And when there is will, it means that this will be done," Tchorzewski told BNS after meeting with Lithuanian Energy Minister Žygimantas Vaičiūnas in Vilnius on Friday.

"The three Baltic states will still have to work out an agreement among them on how the synchronization will take place," he said

When asked if he was optimistic that the Baltic countries and Poland would be able to sign a political agreement on synchronization in June, the minister reiterated that not everything depended on Poland.

"I'm sure that not only will an agreement be signed, but that the synchronization will be done physically as well. Certain issues still need to be clarified with Latvia and Estonia, which is why the operators are carrying out studies. Not everything depends on us, on Poland. It also requires dialog among the Baltic states to develop a platform based on which we would be able to move forward," he said.

The three Baltic countries, Poland and the European Commission have agreed to seek to find by the end of May 2018 the best option for synchronizing the grids. It is important to reach a political agreement by June to have time to prepare for the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) call in 2019 and to start the process before the term of the current Commission expires in 2019.
