This online roundtable is a joint initiative of the Copenhagen School of Energy Infrastructure (CSEI) and the Florence School of Regulation (FSR), with support of the European Commission – Directorate-General for Energy. The European Commission has organised a series of stakeholder webinars on the revision of Regulation (EU) No 347/2013 (TEN-E Regulation).
Regulation (EU) No 347/2013 on guidelines for trans-European energy infrastructure (TEN-E Regulation) aims at fostering the development of cross-border energy infrastructure in Europe. It was proposed by the European Commission in a context of lagging investment in energy infrastructure – in particular investment in large cross-border projects at transmission level – over the timeline of the EU 2020 energy and climate objectives.
The European Green Deal calls for a revision of the TEN-E Regulation. The context has changed and the objective now is to support the decarbonisation of the energy, transport, industrial and buildings sectors, and the deployment of innovative technologies and infrastructure, while keeping the energy transition socially fair.
In this online roundtable, we will assess the experience with the implementation of the TEN-E Regulation and how it can be revised to be aligned with the new objective. The focus will be on the role of the Cost-Benefit Analysis (CBA) methodology, the Cross-Border Cost Allocation (CBCA) process, and Connecting Europe Facility for Energy (CEF-E) funding.
