Assessment of Projects of Common Interest
The European Commission has set out rules for large investments in energy infrastructure (Regulation (EU) 347/2013 on guidelines for trans-European energy infrastructure of April 17, 2013). These rules ensure that Member States and national regulatory authorities provide appropriate incentives when a project promoter incurs higher risks for the development, construction, operation or maintenance of certain projects of common interest.
The Regulation also stipulates that each national regulatory authority publish its methodology and the criteria used to evaluate investments in electricity and gas infrastructure projects and the higher risks incurred by them. With this document, ACM has implemented this obligation, both for electricity and for natural gas.
