On 15 October 2018 the European Commission is opening a call for electricity projects to be submitted as candidates for the fourth European Union ‘Projects of Common Interest’ (PCIs) list. Calls for PCI candidates in the priority corridors for gas, smart grids, cross-border carbon dioxide network, and oil will follow. For more information, please consult the PCI list webpage.

In accordance with the Regulation on guidelines for trans-European energy infrastructure (No 347/2013), candidate projects in electricity must be included in the Ten Year Network Development Plans (TYNDP) developed by the European Network of Transmission System Operators for electricity (ENTSO-E).

Promoters of TYNPD projects wishing to become PCIs are now invited to participate in the call by submitting an application via the on-line submission platforms for transmission* and storage* projects. The TYNDP data will be directly retrieved from your TYNDP 2018 project sheet. The time needed to complete the application will therefore be shorter and should take no more than 15 minutes.

You can apply as of today 15 October 2018 until 15 November 2018 at midnight.
