Projects of Common Interest
Given AQUIND Interconnector’s potential cross-border benefits, AQUIND has been granted permission to apply for the Project of Common Interest (PCI) status.
To be eligible for the PCI status, a project must have a significant impact on energy markets and market
integration in at least two eligible countries, boost competition, enhance energy security by diversifying sources and contribute to the climate and energy goals by integrating renewables.
PCI’s are required to adhere to certain regulations with regard to consultation and preparation of applications, known as the TEN-E Regulations.
For more information on PCIs please visit the European Commission’s website.
