CEEP Special Reports
- Making it happen. Paving the way for the Central European North–South Infrastructure Corridor
- Completing Europe – from the North-South Corridor to Energy, Transportation and Telecommunications Union
- What Energy, Price, Growth?
- The Prague Report - Analysis of Central Europe’s Energy Sector
- The Future of Coal, Clean Coal Technologies and CCS in The EU and Central East European Countries
The Central European North-South Infrastructure Corridor is a key enabler for completing the European integration process by bolstering the connectivity, competitiveness and security of the EU- 11 and the European Union overall. Successful implementation of the Corridor would be a historical milestone in European integration, yielding enormous political, economic and social benefits.
This significant document highlights a critical element in the process of addressing Europe’s weaknesses: infrastructure development across Central Europe in the energy, transportation and telecommunications sectors. The study is structured around these three dimensions, without forgetting, of course, the required financial investments.
This report compares the energy prices between the EU-11 and the EU-15, showing that the gap in wealth is not reflected in prices paid for energy. Furthermore, it makes recommendations concerning energy and climate change in the EU’s new 2030 energy and climate policy strategy.
This report commissioned by CEEP considers the EU-11’s ability to meet 2050 renewable energy targets within the framework of stable economic growth, security of supply and environmental protection.
The report addresses the global and European dimensions of CCS – the opportunities but also the challenges associated with this new technology that may spark a revolution in our future energy policies.
Central Europe Energy Partners (CEEP) represents the interests of the energy sector and energy-intensive companies from Central Europe in order to strengthen the region’s energy security within the framework of a common EU energy and energy security policy. It is the first major body to represent the region at the EU level. CEEP is an international non-profit association with its headquarters in Brussels (Belgium) and a branch in Berlin (Germany).
By combining its capabilities and experience and enhancing co-operation between energy and energy-intensive companies and research institutions, CEEP identifies and advocates common problems and their solutions, whilst facilitating successful implementation of the EU’s energy and energy security policy.
We do believe that only the common activities of all EU Member States could be successful in enhancing the energy security of Central Europe, as well as the European Union as a whole. CEEP wants to strengthen the idea of energy solidarity within the European Union and its non-profit status, emphasises both CEEP’s independence and transparency.
Therefore, we build relations and facilitate contacts between member companies and organisations and EU bodies and agencies, individual representatives and associations of energy and energy-intensive sector companies, as well as international energy sector think-tanks and lobbies based in Brussels.
