For the 2021-2027 funding period, a new category of eligible projects has been introduced in the energy part of the revised Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) programme: cross-border projects in the field of renewable energy. The new CEF Energy window complements other EU renewable energy funding opportunities, focusing specifically on cross-border cooperation to optimise national efforts for deployment of renewable energy.
Cross-border projects in the field of renewable energy shall contribute to decarbonisation, to completing the internal energy market and to enhancing the security of supply. They aim to enable the cost effective deployment of renewable energy.

This call supports EU Member States and private project promoters in selecting the best project concept and setting up the cooperation agreement. It allows for projects to be supported before being included in the CB RES list of projects.
The call is currently open with deadline on 10 January 2023
This call allows projects to get the CB RES status to get to the list of projects and therefore be eligible for funding for works and studies.
