Baltic Energy Market Interconnection Plan (BEMIP) was endorsed by the eight Baltic Sea EU Member States and European Commission on 17 June 2009 and so far has been successfully developed. First time the BEMIP Regional Conference took place in Vilnius on 25 November 2009 with the objective to officially launch the implementation of the BEMIP project. During this period important projects were started in order to create the fully functioning and integrated electricity market. In 2014–2015 the first real results should be achieved including finalization of electricity market and establishment of the power links Estonia-Finland, Lithuania-Poland, Lithuania-Sweden.

The main objective of the BEMIP is the creation of a fully functioning and integrated energy market supported by the necessary infrastructure in order to build a competitive, sustainable and secure energy market in the Baltic Sea Region.
