CEF Energy: 2023 call for cross-border renewable energy projects (CB RES) to obtain the status
The Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) Energy programme for the 2021-2027 period was extended with a cross-border renewable energy (CB RES) window. The scope of the CB RES programme covers renewable energy projects that involve a physical or non-physical cross-border cooperation between EU Members States, but also Member States and non-EU countries. This programme aims to provide financial support to meet EU decarbonisation targets by optimising national efforts for deployment of renewable energy and thus increase the security of energy supply. Following the calls for proposals to support preparatory studies for that type of projects, the European Commission and CINEA are now launching the second call to obtain the status of cross-border renewable energy projects (CB RES status) and therefore enter a list of projects eligible for CEF funding (CB RES list). This call is particularly important because having the official CB RES status is a requirement to be eligible for financial support for studies and works under the CEF Energy Programme. The call also covers projects facilitating renewable energy sources integration through energy storage facilities and which contribute both to the strategic uptake of innovative renewables technologies and to the EU’s long term decarbonisation strategy. Promoters of candidate projects for the CB RES status can participate in the call by submitting an application via the dedicated CB RES submission platform by 3 May 2023.
