Legislative proposal - published by the European Commission in June 2018 - establishing the legal basis for the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) for the period 2021-2027. It also repeals Regulations (EU) No 1316/2013 and (EU) No 283/2014.
The Connecting Europe Facility supports investment in transport, energy and digital infrastructure through the development of the Trans-European networks (TENs). These facilitate cross-border connections and foster greater cohesion across the European Union (EU). In the period 2021-2027, it is proposed that it also promotes cross-border cooperation on renewable energy generation.
The proposal was adopted by the European Commission on 6 June 2018, in the framework of the discussions on the Multiannual Financial Framework (MFF) for the period 2021-2027. The Council of the European Union adopted a partial general approach regarding the draft law on 3 December, while the European Parliament adopted its negotiating position on 12 December. An informal agreement between the co-legislators on this proposal was reached on 8 March 2019.
