Orgalime Position Paper Trialogue priorities Draft TEN E

30 October, 2012
Policies and Issues:
Energy Infrastructure Package

Orgalime as the European engineering industries association represents the European key enabling technology sector of any future European infrastructure and generally welcomes the Energy Infrastructure Package proposed by the Commission. In combination with the draft Connecting Europe Facility Regulation (CEF), which we fully support, we see the draft Regulation on Guidelines for Trans-European Energy Infrastructure (TEN-E)1 as representing a core element of Europe ́s future infrastructure legislation.

For European technology providers, this new energy infrastructure legislation is vital as it determines fundamental parameters for future smart grids in Europe, their interoperability, flexibility and capacity to handle an increasing share of energy generated from renewable energy sources and an ever more decentralised production of energy in the context of an EU Energy Policy that should place the European consumer more and more at its core. The effect of the final TEN-E Regulation on the energy internal market could include the creation of a more stable legal framework for return on investment.

A consistent, ambitious framework is in our view required to stimulate urgently needed investment decisions as well as confidence of the market in such investments.

We call upon regulators to rapidly progress with the adoption of the draft TEN-E and CEF Regulations taking into account the following key priorities and suggestions of European engineering industries: To face at least parts of the challenges ahead, the suggested budget under the draft CEF Regulation needs to be maintained to its full extent.
