Energy: EU invests €150 million in energy infrastructure
EU News 199/2015
Brussels, 14 July 2015
Today Member States agreed on the Commission's proposal to allocate €150 million to key trans-European energy infrastructure projects. The bulk of the support will go to projects in Central Eastern and South Eastern Europe as well as to projects in the Baltic region. In total, 20 projects were selected following a call for proposals under the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF), an EU funding programme for infrastructure. The selectedprojects will increase energy security and help end the isolation of Member States from EU-wide energy networks. They will also contribute to the completion of a European energy market and the integration of renewable energy sources into the electricity grid.
