Innovation and Networks Executive Agency

2018 CEF Energy calls for proposals

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.
The 2018 CEF Energy Work Programme will support grants managed by INEA to finance projects of common interest in the energy sector, namely in electricity and gas.
The grants under CEF Energy will contribute to the further development and implementation of projects of common interest in electricity (including smart grids), gas and cross-border carbon dioxide networks, helping to achieve the broader energy policy objectives of:
•           increasing competitiveness by promoting the further integration of the internal energy market and the interoperability of electricity and gas networks across borders;
•           enhancing the Union security of energy supply, and
•           contributing to sustainable development and protection of the environment, inter alia by the integration of energy from renewable sources and by the development of smart energy networks and carbon dioxide networks.
All the information about 2018 CEF Energy general objectives and actions planned for 2018 can be found in the Work Programme and its annex adopted on 16 March 2018.
The first of the two 2018 calls was published on 26 March and a virtual information day covering the CEF Energy priorities of the first and second calls will take place on Monday 9 April 2018. The second call was published on 11 June.
