Electrification Alliance position on the revision of the TEN-E regulation
The Electrification Alliance welcomes the initiative by the European Commission (EC) to revise the Trans-European Networks – Energy regulation (TEN-E) as part of its Green Deal agenda. The revision offers an important opportunity for the EU to give priority and funding to future-proof Europe’s energy infrastructure, in a cost-effective manner. The priority corridors and areas, as well as the eligibility criteria set out in the TEN-E regulation, were defined in 2013 with market integration and security of supply as the ultimate goal. That approach is no longer in line with the 2030 and 2050 decarbonisation goals. Getting energy infrastructure regulation right is central to reaching these objectives.
