Ukraine’s electricity grid is now a part of the European power grid. It will keep Ukrainian homes warm and lights on
The EU has increased Ukraine’s energy independence by connecting Ukraine’s power grid with the European Continental Grid. “Ukraine, Moldova, and Europe: shared values, shared power and solidarity. I welcome the key step taken today to keep lights on and houses warm in these dark times by synchronizing the electricity grids of Ukraine and Moldova with the EU grid,” European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen said. Until the war started on February 24, 2022, the Ukrainian electricity system used to be connected to those of Russia and Belarus.
