Expanding and Improving Cross Border Energy Networks
The transformation of the European energy system towards a low carbon industry requires substantial investment and financing. According to the Energy Infrastructure Package (EIP), around one trillion euros must be invested in the European energy system until 2020. Out of the €200 billion required investment for transmission networks, only half of the capital will be provided by markets. This leaves a financial gap of ca. €100 bn. and poses a question on the EU role in financing European energy infrastructures.
