CEF Energy: 2023 call for cross-border renewable energy projects

The European Commission and CINEA launched the second CEF Energy 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). Having the official CB RES status is a requirement to be eligible for financial support for studies and works under the CEF Energy Programme.
Obtaining the CB RES status can provide further benefits such as higher visibility, increased investor certainty, and stronger support from EU countries. The call also covers projects facilitating renewable energy sources integration through energy storage facilities which contribute to the strategic uptake of innovative renewables. Promoters of candidate projects for the CB RES status can participate in the call by submitting an application via the dedicated the CB RES submission platform by 3 May 2023.
