The consultation will be open until the 30 April 2019 23:59 hours (CET).
The consultation on the list of candidate Projects of Common Interest in cross-border carbon dioxide transport infrastructure in view of preparing the fourth Union list of Projects of Common Interest in energy has been launched and will remain open until 09.06.2019.
The consultation is aiming at collecting information contributing to evaluate whether the ETS guidelines are effective, efficient, relevant, coherent and have an EU-added value. The consultation also aims at collecting information on available policy options to address the risk of carbon leakage due to indirect emission costs, while preserving the incentive of the EU ETS for a cost-effective decarbonisation of the economy and minimising competition distortions in the internal market.
Every two years, the EU draws a list of PCIs. The latest list was adopted in November 2017. In order to obtain the public’s views on the pertinence and added value of the proposed projects for the upcoming Union list of Projects of Common Interest, a consultation was launched on 22 November 2018. It will be open until the 28th of February 2019. The consultation focuses on specific candidate projects in the field of electricity only.
