BAKU, Azerbaijan, May 27. Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) countries are discussing the possibility of building an energy corridor from Russia through Kazakhstan to Kyrgyzstan, Trend reports citing the CIS Internet portal.
During the Eurasian Economic Forum, Russian Energy Minister, Nikolay Shulginov, noted that building of an extended line of direct current (DC) from Russia’s Siberia to Kyrgyzstan through Kazakhstan is another attractive concept.
“Another significant initiative that we started considering in Kyrgyzstan and submitted to the coordinating council is the construction of a direct current extended line from Siberia to Kyrgyzstan across Kazakhstan's borders. The EAEU's power exchange will be increased as a result of this,” the minister said.
To date, the EAEU countries independently form their national energy balance, based on domestic needs. The transition to a single market will allow energy systems to work complementing each other.
