second call for energy proposals under the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) for 2018 is opened. The European Commission will release €500 million of funding for energy infrastructure projects that plan to strengthen the EU's internal energy market, enhance security of energy supply, and help provide clean, sustainable energy for Europe. The deadline for submitting proposals in the areas of electricity, gas, smart grids and cross-border carbon dioxide networks infrastructures is 11 October 2018. Projects submitted in response to this call will be evaluated in November and December 2018, and the results will be communicated in February 2019.

Proposed projects, which can be either studies or works, will be evaluated against several criteria. These include their state of maturity, their cross-border dimension, and to what extent they will remove bottlenecks and end energy isolation. To be eligible to apply for CEF funding, projects must be designated Projects of Common Interest (PCIs). PCIs are considered essential for completing the EU's internal energy market, and are required to have a significant impact on at least two EU countries.
