“The agreement signed will help improve the abilities of our nuclear energy experts, to raise awareness of nuclear energy and its safety,” Masiulis said in a press release.


“Moreover, Japan has ample experience in the area of pumped storage plants. We’d like to gain better knowledge of this experience and to use it with our Kruonis Pumped Storage Plant (KPSP). At the same time, Lithuania’s companies are competent in solar energy and implement solar energy projects successfully in the Asian countries,” the Lithuanian minister added.
