EU maakt geld vrij voor energie-infrastructuur tussen landen

3 juli 2015 – De Europese Commissie zal 550 mln euro berschikbaar stellen voor de versterking van de ‘cross border energy infrastructure’.

Uit een persbericht van de Europese Commissie
‘(…) The money will be earmarked for projects which help end the energy isolation of some EU countries, help to clear energy bottlenecks and contribute to completing the internal energy market. It will also help to attract additional finance from private and public investors.
Miguel Arias Cañete, EU Commissioner for Climate Action and Energy, said, “well-connected and reliable energy networks are crucial to build a resilient the Energy Union. This will help ensure secure affordable and sustainable energy for all Europeans and businesses. As a key priority for the Juncker Commission, we have to make European public money support targeted and meaningful investments”. (…)’

Over subsidieaanvragen (in te dienen vóór eind september) zal nog dit jaar besloten worden.

Op een bijeenkomst in Wenen van EU-ministers uit de Balkan maakte eurocommissaris Hahn gisteren duidelijk dat de interconnectiviteit in de Balkan-landen prioriteit heeft. ‘We hope to announce a shortlist of the most vital projects that the EU will co-finance this year, through the Western Balkans Investment Framework. There will be several electricity projects in this list. They will develop the region’s capacity to exchange power over longer distances and will allow you to develop synergies between generation capacity and demand.’
