    It means "in the sense of electrical matters."

    Turkey's now on the European power grid, but not a part of the European Union. It's only joined Europe if we are "electrically speaking" or "speaking in terms of electrical matters."

    The answer is in the first paragraph of the artice:
    Turkey may be frustrated in its bid to become part of the European Union, but by the end of September, it will join Europe’s electric grid.
    Electrically Speaking = in terms of electricity.
