European Parliament approves new funding opportunities for infrastructure projects

Summary -

On 19 November, the European Parliament (“EP”) voted to approve the Connecting Europe Facility (“CEF”) Regulation. The CEF Regulation is likely to become law early in 2014. The CEF Regulation is a funding instrument which earmarks the EU budget for trans-European transport, energy and telecoms projects. It is an important milestone in determining the EU funds which will be available for the projects in the period 2014-2020.

The intention is that the CEF will provide targeted financing for projects with a trans-European dimension. The EP has agreed to assign the CEF a budget of approximately €29.3 billion (based on 2011 prices) for the next EU financial period, which runs from 2014 to 2020. Of the €29.3 billion sum, €23.2 billion has been allocated to the transport sector; €5.12 billion for energy and €1 billion for telecoms.
