International activities

Litgrid is a member of the European Network of Transmission System Operators for Electricity (ENTSO-E). Established on 19 December 2008 this organisation unites 41 electricity transmission system operators of 34 countries. Litgrid actively uses its ENTSO-E membership in implementing the projects on electricity market integration, synchronisation with the continental European grids, and international power links.
The latest Ten-Year Network Development Plan (TYNDP) prepared and published by ENTSO-E can be found here
The purpose of the Baltic Energy Market Interconnection Plan (BEMIP) is to create the operating and integrated markets for electricity and gas and to secure the necessary energy infrastructure in order to establish a competitive, sustainable and secure energy market in the Baltic Sea Region.
Obligations of the Republic of Lithuania under BEMIP in the electricity sector are implemented by Litgrid, which is responsible for the development of the electricity market and construction of the international power links with  Poland (LitPol Link) and Sweden (NordBalt).
There are five different synchronous zones in Europe: Nordel, IPS/UPS, European Continental Network, Great Britain and Ireland. A synchronous area is a geographical area in which power generators operate at the synchronised frequency and time. At present, Lithuania’s power system operates in the IPS/UPS synchronous area, within the power ring of Belarus, Russia, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania (BRELL). BRELL is an agreement between the transmission system operators of the aforementioned countries, which regulates the coordination of the operational control over the power systems. TSOs of the Baltic States seek to ensure that BRELL decisions are in line with the European Union legislation. Interests of the BRELL members are represented by Belenergo (Belarusian TSO), SO UPS and FSK EES (Russian TSOs), Elering (Estonian TSO), Augstsprieguma tīkls (Latvian TSO), and Litgrid.
