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.
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.
