new call for proposals has been launched under the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) programme for Energy, making available €1 million to support preparatory studies for projects before they are included in the Union list of cross-border renewable energy projects.

In particular, the call will contribute to support both the EU Member States and private project promoters in order to advance cooperation ideas, create momentum amongst involved stakeholders and, with this, generate a pipeline of cross-border renewable projects.

What is the purpose of the call?

The purpose of the call is therefore to overcome the obstacles that, in the past, have prevented cooperation projects from going ahead due to the uncertainty on the allocation of costs and benefits between the involved Member States or due to the additional complexity of setting up cross-border support.

Applicants can submit their proposals via the Funding & Tenders Portal by Tuesday 30 November 2021 at 17.00 CET.
