European coordinators

The Decision No 1364/2006/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 6 September 2006 laying down guidelines for trans-European energy networks (TEN-E), foresees the appointment of European coordinators in order to monitor and to facilitate the implementation of the most critical identified priority projects. In this context, the appointment of Coordinators has also been mentioned as an opportunity for important infrastructures encountering difficulties in the conclusions of the European Council of 8/9 March 2007.

Four European coordinators have been appointed on the 12 September 2007 by the Commission for duration of four years and they will monitor projects facing technical, political or financial difficulties. The "Priority Interconnection Plan" adopted by the Commission on 10 January 2007 in the framework of the so-called "energy package" and the Action Plan adopted by the European Council on 9 March 2007 mentions specifically the nomination of European Coordinators for the following projects:
