"We spoke about the need to develop a joint wind farm with Latvia in the Baltic Sea as that would allow avoiding sudden price fluctuations. The project should be implemented at the EU level and electricity produced in this farm could be supplied to all Baltic states," she told reporters after the Baltic prime ministers' meeting in Riga.

This project would further bolster the Baltic states' energy security, the Estonian premier said, adding, however, that it was important for regional countries to continue making every effort to connect electricity and gas systems with continental Europe's networks.

"We have to do everything for synchronization to continue, to avoid disruptions. We know that Russia can employ such measures," Kallas said.

Last year, Estonia's state-owned energy group Eesti Energia signed a cooperation agreement with Denmakr's Orsted on the construction of the first wind farm in the Gulf of Riga

Lithuania has plans to build its first million-worth wind farm in the Baltic Sea by 2028.
