Lithuania’s wish to synchronize its electricity transmission system with the European continental grids may wane amid uncertainties in European electricity markets and emerging threats of technological disruptions, the Verslo Žinios business daily reports.

Eurelectric, the association of Europe’s biggest electricity generation and distribution companies, believes that the European Union’s (EU) plans to invest 1 trillion euros in the Community’s energy sector by 2020 will be implemented halfway. It has warned the Union’s politicians about delays in making investments in transmission infrastructure, failure of emissions trading system (ETS), lack of clarity as regards green energy subsidies and the environment discouraging investments in production.

Lithuania, as well as Latvia, Finland, Poland, Germany, and the Czech Republic, have been marked out as a group of countries raising doubts as to the stability of electricity transmission system in a map compiled by the European Network of Transmission System Operators for Electricity (ENTSO-E).
