The Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) Energy programme for the 2021-2027 period has extended with a cross-border renewable energy (CB RES) window. The scope of the CB RES programme covers renewable energy projects involving 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 this calls for proposals, 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). CINEA launched the same call in 2022 and three projects made it to the CB RES list and received the status.

Find out more information about the call.

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.
