Ukrainian and Moldovan electricity grids linked to European high-voltage grid
The European Organization of Transmission System Operators for Electricity (ENTSO-E) gave the green light for supporting the electricity systems in Ukraine and Moldova.
The European Organization of Transmission System Operators for Electricity (ENTSO-E) gave the green light for supporting the electricity systems in Ukraine and Moldova. Following extensive safety, security and stability analyses, ENTSO-E, of which TenneT is also a member, has decided to provide emergency support to the Ukrainian and Moldovan power systems, connecting it to the so-called 'synchronous' continental European electricity grids.
TenneT fully supports this initiative and emphasizes the importance of an independent, secure and stable supply of electricity in Ukraine, Europe and thus also the countries where TenneT itself operates, the Netherlands and Germany.
Critical infrastructure, in this case our electricity system, has enormous social value, even more so in these times of conflict in Europe. Security of electricity supply is crucial to our societies. To be clear, we are fully committed to ensuring that security of energy supply, we have done so in the past and we will certainly continue to do so in the future. Against the backdrop of the current Russian aggression in Ukraine, we are also committed to supporting our governments in phasing out fossil fuels and increasing the share of renewables as soon as possible. For example, Germany has announced its intention to invest 200 billion euros in the coming years to make its energy supply more independent of oil and gas. Also the Netherlands is fully engaged in a switch to a largely sustainable energy system.
