The European Commission has concluded that the planned grant of EUR 170 million to support the construction of a gas-fired power plant in Lithuania does not constitute State aid for two reasons. One, Lithuania will not acquire control over the resources allocated to the project. Two, the grant will be provided by the governing body of the Ignalina International Decommissioning Support Fund (IIDSF), which is managed by the European Bank for Reconstruction. The IIDSF was set up in order to pool contributions from international donors to provide support to Lithuania for the decommissioning of the Ignalina nuclear power plant and to set up the new power generation capacities necessary to compensate for the closure. The new plant will supply electricity to the grid and heat to the nearby region.
