INEA has published a new list of projects CEF Energy
The Connecting Europe Facility for Energy (CEF-E) actions are managed by INEA (Innovation and Networks Executive Agency). Each action contributes towards the realisation of a Project of Common Interest (PCI), which are pre-identified pan-European energy infrastructure projects. To help create an integrated EU energy market, the European Commission has adopted a first list of 248 projects of common interest (PCIs). These projects may benefit from accelerated licensing procedures, improved regulatory conditions, and access to financial support totalling € 5.85 billion from the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) between 2014 and 2020.
The list of projects is renewed every two years. This allows to integrate new projects and remove those that have been completed or deemed unfeasible. For the 2013-2015 list of PCI's, please click here.
The Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) finances projects which fill the missing links in Europe's energy, transport and digital backbone. It will also make Europe's economy greener by promoting cleaner transport modes, high speed broadband connections and facilitating the use of renewable energy in line with the Europe 2020 Strategy. In addition the funding for energy networks will further integrate the internal energy market, reduce the EU's energy dependency and bolster the security of supply. By focussing on smart, sustainable and fully interconnected transport, energy and digital networks, the Connecting Europe Facility will help to complete the European single market.
