Litgrid intends to complete one of its strategic projects – NordBalt, the construction of a power link with Sweden – by the end of 2015. This link is a prerequisite for the common Baltic – Nordic electricity market. The future electricity bridge will enable Lithuania to purchase electricity from Northern European countries that are rich in hydro energy resources.
LNG terminal – one of the key projects to ensure energy security, which creates the conditions for the emergence of the natural gas market, and brings economic benefits to the State, consumers and the company executing the project.
NPP decommissioning is the last stage of power plant existence after it was designed, constructed, started to operate and was in operation. The ultimate goal of decommissioning is to achieve the condition when the territory is out of control of national supervisory authorities and may be used for other purposes.

The Trans-European railway Rail Baltica, linking Helsinki – Tallinn – Riga – Kaunas – Warsaw and continuing on to Berlin, is to be developed within the territories of the co-operating EU Member States.
After proving its competitive advantages and gaining the leading position among the strongest Baltic seaports, Klaipėda implements a number of ambitious development plans and is ready to meet the challenges of the century.
The reconstruction of a road section from Kaunas through Marijampolė to Suvalkai that belongs to Via Baltica is to be finished until 2018.
In cooperation with the Polish Gas Transmission System Operator GAZ-SYSTEM S.A., AB Amber Grid is carrying out works for the implementation of the project “The Gas Interconnection Poland–Lithuania“, the goal of which is to integrate the isolated gas markets of the Baltic Countries into the EU common market of natural gas, to diversify the gas supply sources and routes.
The end to this isolation will only come with full-fledged integration of the Baltic countries’ electricity systems into the European electricity grid, market and system control, i. e. with the start of synchronous operations in the European Continental Network.
