Baltic TSOs reduce electricity import capacity from Russia


In view of Russia's military aggression against Ukraine in order to ensure system stability and security in Baltic power systems, the Baltic transmission system operators (Baltic TSOs) Augstsprieguma tīkls AS (Latvia), Litgrid AB (Lithuania) and Elering AS (Estonia) have agreed to impose a limitation for the total electricity import from Russia to the Baltics region.

The agreement stipulates that from March 3rd, 2022, the total Baltic electricity import capacity from Russia will be limited to 300 MW, with a separate limit of 150 MW on the Russian-Latvian border and 150 MW on the Kaliningrad-Lithuanian border, respectively.

Baltic TSOs have informed the electricity market participants about the decision by placing the respective announcement on the market announcement platform of the electricity exchange "NordPool".
