Connecting Europe Facility 2021-2027: Financing key EU infrastructure networks

17-06-2020

The EU supports the development of high-performing, sustainable and interconnected trans-European networks in the areas of transport, energy and digital infrastructure. It set up the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) as a dedicated financing instrument for the 2014-2020 period, to channel EU funding into the development of infrastructure networks, help eliminate market failures and attract further investment from the public and private sectors. Following a mid-term evaluation, the European Commission ...

The EU supports the development of high-performing, sustainable and interconnected trans-European networks in the areas of transport, energy and digital infrastructure. It set up the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) as a dedicated financing instrument for the 2014-2020 period, to channel EU funding into the development of infrastructure networks, help eliminate market failures and attract further investment from the public and private sectors. Following a mid-term evaluation, the European Commission proposed to renew the programme under the next long term EU budget. Negotiations between the Council and the European Parliament on the content of the proposal reached a partial provisional agreement, leaving aside the budget section and the questions relating to third countries. The agreement was approved by EU ambassadors and adopted by the Parliament at first reading on 17 April 2019. Discussions in the Council on the EU's 2021-2027 budget resumed when the Finnish Presidency of the Council published its ‘negotiating box’ in December 2019 and then with the proposal put forward in February 2020 by the President of the European Council, Charles Michel. However, Member States have not yet reached an agreement. In reaction to the coronavirus crisis and to the demand of the European Council, the Commission proposed an EU recovery fund and the adjusted Multiannual Financial Framework on 27 May 2020, also modifying the amounts to be allocated to the 2021-2027 CEF programme. Fourth edition. The 'EU Legislation in Progress' briefings are updated at key stages throughout the legislative procedure.

On 30 November 2016, the European Commission presented a legislative proposal for a regulation on the Agency for the Cooperation of Energy Regulators (ACER), as part of the ‘clean energy for all Europeans’ legislative package. The proposed regulation gives ACER a stronger role in the development of network codes and the coordination of regional decision-making. It furthermore assigns it a number of new tasks related to regional operational centres, the supervision of nominated electricity market operators and the assessment of generation adequacy and risk preparedness. In the European Parliament, the proposal was referred to the Committee on Industry, Research and Energy (ITRE), which adopted its report in February 2018. A provisional trilogue agreement was reached on 11 December 2018. The European Parliament adopted the text in the March II 2019 plenary session and the Council on 22 May 2019. The final act was signed on 5 June 2019 and published in the Official Journal on 14 June 2019. The Regulation entered into force on 4 July 2019. Fourth edition.

Regional interdependencies would be taken into account in the preparation of national ...

On 30 November 2016, the European Commission adopted a proposal for a regulation on risk-preparedness in the electricity sector. This proposal addresses shortcomings in the existing legislation, notably a lack of regional coordination, and differing national rules and procedures. It would replace the existing legislation, and establish common rules on crisis prevention and crisis management in the electricity sector. Regional interdependencies would be taken into account in the preparation of national riskpreparedness plans and in managing crisis situations. Transparency would be enhanced by requiring an ex-post evaluation of crisis situations. In the European Parliament, the proposal was referred to the Committee on Industry, Research and Energy (ITRE), which adopted its report in February 2018. A trilogue agreement was reached in November 2018. The European Parliament adopted the text in the March II 2019 plenary session and the Council on 22 May 2019.

Les politiques de l’Union – Au service des citoyens: Approvisionnement et sécurité énergétiques

28-06-2019

La politique énergétique est une compétence partagée entre l’Union européenne et ses États membres. S’il appartient à l’Union, en vertu des traités, de garantir la sécurité de l’approvisionnement en énergie, les États membres sont compétents pour déterminer la structure de leur approvisionnement énergétique et choisir leurs sources d’énergie.

La politique énergétique est une compétence partagée entre l’Union européenne et ses États membres. S’il appartient à l’Union, en vertu des traités, de garantir la sécurité de l’approvisionnement en énergie, les États membres sont compétents pour déterminer la structure de leur approvisionnement énergétique et choisir leurs sources d’énergie. La législation de l’Union en matière de sécurité de l’approvisionnement en énergie, qui se concentre sur les marchés du gaz naturel et de l’électricité, est étroitement liée à d’autres objectifs de l’Union: la consolidation d’un marché unique de l’énergie, l’amélioration de l’efficacité énergétique ainsi que la promotion de sources d’énergie renouvelables afin de décarboner l’économie et d’atteindre les objectifs de l’accord de Paris. La législature 2014-2019 a vu naître de nombreuses initiatives en relation avec la sécurité de l’approvisionnement en énergie. Les institutions de l’Union sont parvenues à un accord concernant un règlement révisé sur la sécurité de l’approvisionnement en gaz, un règlement révisé sur la sécurité de l’approvisionnement en électricité, une décision révisée sur les accords intergouvernementaux dans le domaine de l’énergie, une révision ciblée de la directive sur le gaz en vue d’appliquer les principales dispositions de cette dernière aux gazoducs reliant l’Union européenne à des pays tiers, mais aussi de nouveaux objectifs relatifs à l’efficacité énergétique et aux énergies renouvelables à l’horizon 2030. Le Parlement a également adopté plusieurs résolutions d’initiative dans le domaine de l’énergie, y compris une résolution sur une nouvelle stratégie de l’Union pour le gaz naturel liquéfié et le stockage du gaz, élément primordial pour garantir la sécurité de l’approvisionnement en gaz. Entre-temps, des projets européens d’intérêt commun (PIC) financent des infrastructures énergétiques qui renforcent les interconnexions et consolident la sécurité de l’approvisionnement. Les citoyens européens attendent de plus en plus de l’Union qu’elle intervienne davantage dans le domaine de l’approvisionnement et de la sécurité énergétiques. Si ce point de vue était partagé par un peu plus de la moitié des citoyens de l’Union en 2016 (52 %), il est maintenant exprimé par environ deux tiers d’entre eux (65 %). L’Union conservera un rôle primordial dans le suivi de la sécurité de l’approvisionnement au cours de la transition énergétique depuis l’ancien système reposant sur une production centralisée dominée par les carburants fossiles et les marchés nationaux, vers un nouveau système caractérisé par une part élevée d’énergies renouvelables, par une production plus locale et par des marchés transfrontières. Cependant, si l’Union souhaitait intervenir directement dans la définition de l’approvisionnement en énergie de ses États membres, elle devrait suivre une procédure législative spéciale, exigeant l’unanimité du Conseil, et le Parlement serait amené à jouer un rôle consultatif uniquement. Le présent document est une mise à jour d’une note plus ancienne, publiée avant les élections européennes de 2019.

Common rules for gas pipelines entering the EU internal market

27-05-2019

In November 2017, the European Commission adopted a legislative proposal to fully apply key provisions of the 2009 Gas Directive to gas pipelines between the European Union (EU) and third countries. Member States would need to cooperate with third countries to ensure full compliance with EU rules. The revised directive was seen by many observers as a part of the broader EU response to the Gazprom-led Nord Stream 2 project, which the European Commission publicly opposes. The Parliament adopted its ...

In November 2017, the European Commission adopted a legislative proposal to fully apply key provisions of the 2009 Gas Directive to gas pipelines between the European Union (EU) and third countries. Member States would need to cooperate with third countries to ensure full compliance with EU rules. The revised directive was seen by many observers as a part of the broader EU response to the Gazprom-led Nord Stream 2 project, which the European Commission publicly opposes. The Parliament adopted its position on the gas directive in plenary on April 2018, whereas the Council adopted its general approach on 8 February 2019. This was swiftly followed by a single trilogue meeting on 12 February 2019 at which the EU institutions reached a provisional agreement. The agreed text was later formally adopted by Parliament and Council, and entered into force on 23 May 2019. Fourth edition.

Couplage des secteurs: Comment le développer dans l’Union pour favoriser la stabilité du réseau et la décarbonisation?

19-11-2018

Sector coupling involves the increased integration of energy end-use and supply sectors with one another. This can improve the efficiency and flexibility of the energy system as well as its reliability and adequacy. Additionally, sector coupling can reduce the costs of decarbonisation. To foster the full potential of sector coupling in several end-use and supply applications, it is important that existing techno-economic, policy and regulatory barriers are removed. Furthermore, a more integrated ...

This initial appraisal assesses the strengths and weaknesses of the European Commission's impact assessment accompanying its proposal for establishing the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) for the 2021-2027 period. CEF is an EU funding instrument designed to promote and part-finance the construction of pivotal cross border transport, energy and telecommunications infrastructure links between the EU's Member States. The proposal intends to support the achievement of the EU policy objectives in the transport, energy and digital sectors as regards the trans-European networks and to support cross-border cooperation between Member States on renewables planning and deployment. The appraisal concludes that the impact assessment (IA) provides a good description of the policy challenges of the new CEF based on the mid-term evaluation of the programme. The IA envisages a change in the scope for the digital and energy sectors. Alternative options are identified for the energy sector only. The IA would have benefited from better illustrating if, and in case how, the preferred option would take advantage from the existing, or forthcoming, legislation in establishing the envisaged enabling framework for cross-border cooperation on renewables. The IA does not discuss social or environmental impacts of the proposed measures and economic impacts are discussed for the energy sector only. Potential impacts on SMEs are not discussed, although SMEs might have deserved some analysis considering the specific objectives of the trans-European networks for the digital sector. An analysis regarding the impact on competitiveness appears to be missing as well. The final version of the IA appears to have addressed almost entirely the improvements requested by the Regulatory Scrutiny Board.

Le deuxième rapport de la Commission européenne sur l’état de l’union de l’énergie, présenté en février 2017, brosse un tableau des progrès considérables réalisés depuis deux ans, soit depuis que la stratégie pour l’union de l’énergie est en place. L’ensemble des nouvelles propositions législatives a désormais été adopté par la Commission. La plupart de ces propositions sont encore en cours d’examen par le Parlement et le Conseil, bien que, dans certains cas, un accord interinstitutionnel ait déjà été convenu. L’année 2017 est donc celle des négociations en vue de l’adoption de nombreuses propositions législatives ayant déjà été examinées, ainsi que d’un nombre plus restreint de nouvelles initiatives. L’Union et ses États membres sont sur la bonne voie pour atteindre les objectifs du paquet sur le climat et l’énergie à l’horizon 2020 en matière de promotion des sources d’énergie renouvelables, d’amélioration de l’efficacité énergétique et de réduction des émissions de gaz à effet de serre. Des efforts continus sont nécessaires pour réaliser les plus ambitieux objectifs du cadre d’action en matière de climat et d’énergie à l’horizon 2030. L’union de l’énergie prévoit une série de mesures concrètes en vue de la mise en œuvre de ce cadre, mais les principales institutions européennes affichent différents degrés d’ambition dans chaque domaine. Un nouveau train de mesures législatives sur la mobilité à faible taux d’émissions est attendu en 2017, ainsi que la poursuite d’actions entreprises dans un large éventail de domaines liés à l’énergie. Parmi elles figurent des mesures visant à améliorer les infrastructures gazières et électriques, à promouvoir la diplomatie énergétique et climatique, ainsi qu’à faire avancer la recherche et l’innovation en matière de technologies énergétiques.
