Energy & Climate: Orgalim comments on a proposal for revising the TEN-E Regulation

Published: 31 March 2021

Policies & Issues: Energy & Climate

Orgalim, representing Europe’s technology industries, welcomes a new proposal for revising the Trans-European Networks for Energy (TEN-E) Regulation (2020/0360), published by the European Commission on 15 December 2020.

Ensuring that the TEN-E framework is fit for purpose in a wider policy context of reaching climate neutrality by 2050, as enshrined in the European Green Deal, has already been welcomed by Orgalim in our October 2020 position paper “Orgalim recommendations on aligning the TEN-E regulation with the European Green Deal”. We also welcome that some of our recommendations are reflected in the Commission’s proposal, such as the suggested removal of the 10kV requirement for smart grid projects.

By focusing on sustainability and clean technologies, the proposed new TEN-E rules represent an important step in future-proofing the energy infrastructure. With a view to further aligning the revised TEN-E Regulation with the European Green Deal’s objective of electrification and decarbonisation of the energy system and the overall economy, we call upon the European Parliament and the EU Council to undertake several actions.
