Innovation and Networks Executive Agency


INEA ceased operations on 31 March 2021. The European Climate, Infrastructure and Environment Executive Agency (CINEA) was established on 1 April 2021 to take over its legacy portfolio as well as additional EU funding programmes.


€4.6 billion is available for 2014-2020 for the energy sector under the Connecting Europe Faclity programme. The majority of the funding is made in the form of allocated grants following competitive calls for proposals.

The 2020 CEF Energy call for proposals will make nearly €980 million available to finance Projects of Common Interest (PCIs) in the energy sector, namely in electricity, gas, smart grids and cross-border carbon dioxide network infrastructure.
