26 proposers to compete for the CEF Energy funding

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.

Creation date: April 30, 2015

INEA has received 26 project proposals requesting €284 million in total EU funding by the deadline of the EU's Connecting Europe facility (CEF) call in the area of energy. 



The call CEF-Energy-2015-1 was open for project proposals on improving trans-European electricity and gas infrastructure. The indicative available budget of the call is €100 million.


The projects will be selected with the assistance of external experts. Evaluation of the proposals will start in May, and the applicants will receive the results by mid-July.


A second CEF Energy call will be launched in June 2015. In total, €4.7 billion will be made available for improving the trans-European energy infrastructure for the period 2014-2020, subject to final approval of the European Fund for Strategic Investments in 2015.
