The European Commission has identified IFA2 as a Project of Common Interest (PCI). This means it should:

  • Deliver significant benefits for at least two European Member States
  • Further support market integration and competition
  • Enhance security of energy supply
  • Contribute to reducing CO2 emissions

PCIs are governed under Regulation (EU) No 347/2013 on guidelines for trans-European energy infrastructure, referred to as the TEN-E Regulations.

A link to the TEN-E Regulations is provided below.
