Key EU cross-border energy infrastructure projects

The European Commission has published on 28 July 2016, an updated map of ongoing and completed energy infrastructure projects – known as “Projects of Common Interest (PCIs)”. The projects are designed to help complete the EU’s internal energy market and reach its policy objectives of affordable, secure and sustainable energy.

In 2014, 647 million EUR was allocated from the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) programme to 34 projects for electricity and gas transmission lines, LNG terminals and electricity storage . In 2015, CEF grants amounting 366 million EUR were allocated to 35 infrastructure projects - of those, 20 were in the gas sector and 15 in electricity. Under the first call for PCI proposals of 2016, EU countries agreed to invest 263 million EUR in key infrastructure projects , while a second call for PCI proposals is now open until 8 November 2016.
