A plan to synchronise Lithuanian power grid with the European system has been submitted to the Cabinet for discussion, the Energy Ministry said on Tuesday.

Lithuania is working on "major synchronization infrastructure projects [agreed with] Latvia, Estonia, Poland and the European Commission," Energy Minister Žygimantas Vaičiūnas said in a press release.

"At the same time, the action plan also covers projects for reinforcing our electricity system," he added.

In June, Seimas adopted a law on synchronization that calls for a plan for the implementation of the synchronization project. The Baltic states are in the process of preparing their infrastructure for synchronous operation with continental Europe by 2025.

The plan includes all the necessary technical and organizational solutions that were called for by the European Network of Transmission System Operators (ENTSO-E) in May.

The Cabinet has already endorsed a list of 14 projects necessary for the transition, and several of them are currently at the planning stage.
