Regulation (EU) No 347/2013 on guidelines for trans-European energy infrastructure.
On 15 December 2020, the European Commission adopted a proposal to revise the 2013 regulation on trans-European networks in energy (TEN-E).
The revision of the TEN-E Regulation identifies 11 priority corridors and 3 priority thematic areas to develop and interconnect. This will be done mostly through projects of common interest (PCIs), financed by the Connecting Europe Facility for 2021-2027. The revised Regulation updates the infrastructure categories eligible for support with an emphasis on decarbonisation and adds a new focus on offshore electricity grids, hydrogen infrastructure and smart grids.
The revised TEN-E Regulation is currently under discussion in the European Parliament and the Council. Once a provisional political agreement is found between the two institutions, a formal adoption procedure will seal the agreement into legislation.
