Abstract: The purpose of this article is to present Lithuanian and Polish cooperation on joint energy projects in 2004–2015 in line with the European Union’s initiative to build the Common European Energy Market. Polish-Lithuanian cooperation has intensified after both countries’ accession to the EU, and the most important areas of cooperation of the analyzed countries include the construction of a power bridge, construction of a pipeline, cooperation in the construction of the Visaginas Nuclear Power Plant and cooperation within the framework of BEMIP. Despite the declarations, none of the joint projects is being developed in accordance with agreed plans. This article tries to clarify the cause of cooperation, how it developed, the main barriers and difficulties, and the possible consequences that arise after the implementation of the analyzed projects.
