As part of the implementation of the Energy Union, Member States have approved a proposal from the European Commission to invest 873 million euros in infrastructure interconnection and clean energy transport.
Projects to benefit from this investment will receive a grant from the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF), which supports trans-European infrastructure.
Europe’s transition to a clean and modern economy is the goal of the Energy Union, a priority of the Juncker Commission. It is now becoming the new reality on the ground, and one important building block is adapting the European infrastructure to the future energy needs.
Properly interconnected electricity lines and gas pipelines form the backbone of an integrated European energy market anchored on the principle of solidarity. Thus, supporting these 17 selected electricity and gas projects , signals Europe’s willingness to upgrade and make the European energy system more competitive that will ultimately deliver cheaper and secure energy to all European consumers.
