The Trans-European Energy Networks (TEN-E) Regulation identifies priority corridors and thematic areas of trans-European energy infrastructure and provides guidelines for the selection of Projects of Common Interest (PCIs). The TEN-E Regulation establishes that PCIs can benefit from financial support from the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF), streamlined permitting, specific regulatory treatment providing access to cross-border cost-allocation mechanisms and incentives, and increased transparency. The main objective of the TEN-E Regulation is the development and interoperability of trans-European energy networks and connection to such networks.
The main objective of this assignment was to provide an independent evaluation of the TEN-E Regulation and PCI framework. It aimed to assess whether the framework for the implementation of PCIs is adequate and to what extent the TEN-E Regulation is delivering on its objectives. The evaluation is based on the assessment criteria and evaluation questions listed in the Terms of Reference (ToR) and the evaluation matrix (Annex). The study also contributes to identifying inadequacies or barriers and subsequently proposing and evaluating possible options to adapt provisions or processes in order to enhance the effectiveness of the regulation.
