The European Commission is releasing 800 million euro of funding for projects in the areas of electricity, gas and smart grids infrastructure. The call for proposals under the Connecting Europe Facility – Energy (CEF) will be open until 12 October 2017.


The projects will strengthen the EU’s internal energy market, enhance security of energy supply, and help provide clean, sustainable energy for Europe.

Proposed projects, which can be either studies or construction works, will be evaluated against several criteria. The CEF provides EU funding for infrastructure projects. It funds energy projects that increase competitiveness, enhance the EU’s security of energy supply, and contribute to sustainable development and protection of the environment. 

It is making available a total of 5.35 billion euro for energy projects in the period 2014-2020. Projects submitted in response to this call will be evaluated in November and December 2017, and the results will be communicated in early 2018.
