3 European Energy Security Strategy 28 May 2014European Energy Security StrategyImplementation of critical PCI in the gas sectorBetter use of regasification and storageIncreasing domestic production and diversifying suppliesProtection of critical energy infrastructureInternal market with regional approachesStrenghten the Energy CommunityOne VoiceStress Tests security of gas supply(16 October 2014)
4 Towards an Integrated Roadmap December 2014Towards an Integrated RoadmapFour key Energy System challengesActive consumerEnergy efficiencySystem optimisationSecure, cost-effective, clean and competitive supplyCross-cutting aspects: financing, education, socio-economicsRegional approachesPolicy & regulatory frameworkIdentification, model, analysis, map efficiency & emissionsCapacity building & knowledge sharingOperations, control and monitoring of infrastructurePlanning and design of the energy systemIntegration of data and information networksGovernance: CBA, socio-economic & environmental methods and tools
5 Integration of energy infrastructure and market An example of regional approachRegional coordination of energy policies is essential is areas such as the BalticIntegration of energy infrastructure and marketIncrease intermittent RESSecurity of supplyJRC established the "Baltic Energy Security Research Platform” (18 Dec 2013)
6 PCIs are essential for reaching the objectives of the energy policy Projects of Common InterestPCIs are essential for reaching the objectives of the energy policyNeed to integrate the proposal and review done by the regional groups2nd call: ≤ 500 proposalsJRC integrates the data, building the basis for a multi-criteria analysisJRC + national experts will evaluate the projects with this methodologyin view of their contribution to energy policy objectivesOn 29 October 2014, Member States voted in favour of allocating €647 million to key energy infrastructure projects. The money will go to 34 actions selected after a call for proposals under the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF). CEF has a €5.85 billion budget for supporting trans-European energy infrastructure until 2020.Following the vote, the European Commission will have to adopt a decision formalising the list of actions co-financed and the maximum amount granted to each of them.These actions will advance projects from a list of 248 key energy infrastructure projects published in October 2013 under the new guidelines for trans-European energy infrastructure. Carrying the label "projects of common interest" (PCI) they benefit from faster and more efficient permit granting procedures and improved regulatory treatment.A PCI has to have significant benefits for at least two Member States; contribute to market integration and further competition; enhance security of supply, and reduce CO2 emissions. The list of PCIs is updated every two years.Connecting Europe FacilityAn amount of €5.85 billion will be made available for improving the trans-European energy infrastructure for the period The "Connecting Europe Facility (CEF)" – an initiative proposed by the European Commission in October 2011 – will soon be adopted by the European Parliament and the Council. In addition to energy networks, CEF will also provide much needed funds to Europe's transport and digital networks.
