The Energy Community Secretariat has launched a tender for technical support aimed at assessing candidate Projects of Energy Community Interest (PECI) and Projects of Mutual Interest (PMI) in electricity, gas and oil infrastructure and smart grids deployment, in line with the EU Regulation 347/2013 on Guidelines for Trans-European Energy Infrastructure.

The tendering procedure will close on September 6, 2017 at 17.00 CET, the Energy Community Secretariat announced in a statement.

The objective of the technical support is to utilize electricity and gas market models for the Energy Community Contracting Parties for assessment of PECI and PMI candidates and a multi-criteria assessment methodology for a cost-benefit analysis.

The consultant will assess the candidate projects for electricity, gas and oil infrastructure, as well as for smart grids, in order to identify those, which bring the largest benefits for the Energy Community.

Further details on the scope, working methods, deliverables and timeline, are available in the tender document published at Energy Community Secretariat’s website.

The Energy Community adopted the EU Regulation 347/2013 on guidelines for trans-European energy infrastructure, with certain adaptations, on October 16, 2015. The purpose of this Regulation is to streamline the permitting procedure and facilitate investments in the energy infrastructure in order to achieve the Energy Community’s energy and environment policy objectives.

The adapted Regulation establishes rules for identifying PECIs and PMIs. These projects will benefit from streamlined permitting procedures within Contracting Parties, and where applicable from cross-border cost allocation, the tender document said.

PECIs and PMIs may also be eligible for the EU technical and financial assistance from the Instrument for Pre-Accession Assistance (IPA) the Neighbourhood Investment Facility (NIF) or the Western Balkan Investment Framework (WBIF).
