NEW! TEN-E Information Day organised by the European Commission
DG ENER organises every year a "TEN-E Information Day" in the framework of the annual TEN-E (Trans-European-Networks -Energy) call for proposals. These events aim at informing the stakeholders of the electricity and gas sector about topical issues in energy policy and more particularly about the TEN-E policy and the priorities for the call.
This year, the European Commission would like to use this 5th Information Day to give stakeholders an overview of the recently adopted Energy Infrastructure Package (E.I.P.) and of the existing and planned financial instruments. They would also like to receive stakeholder feedback.
The event will be held on the 28 January 2011 in Brussels in the premises of the Centre of Conference Albert Borschette (Rue Froissard, 36 - Room 0D).
Please visit the European Commission’s website to register for this event:
