Lithuania embarks on a mission to build one of the largest battery storage systems in the world, which is expected to be finalized by the end of 2021.The country is investing €100 million to build four 50 Megawatt(MW) batteries with at least of 200 Megawatt hours [...]
The Republic of Croatia is approaching its final stages in the development of a Liquid Natural Gas (LNG) terminal in the Adriatic Sea. The official launch for Croatia’s first LNG terminal is set for January 1, 2021, with a capacity of 2.6 billion cubic meters (bcm) of [...]
A Commission proposal to invest nearly €1 billion in European energy infrastructure was approved by EU Member States. The large amount of funding will be allocated to 5 key European energy projects under the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) and 3 of them are located [...]
The 8 EU Member States, including Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland, signed a joint declaration of intent committing themselves to closer cooperation around the development of the Baltic Sea offshore wind energy area. The declaration emphasized the potential of [...]
Today, as part of the European Green Deal, the European Commission is launching the EU Offshore Renewable Energy Strategy, proposing to increase offshore wind capacity in Europe from the current level of 12 GW to at least 60 GW by 2030 and to 300 GW by 2050. This [...]
On 27 October, Central European Energy Partners (CEEP) together with the European Roundtable on Climate Change and Sustainable Transition (ERCST) organised an event on the EU ETS funding mechniams. During this meeting, we discussed the state of play of the funding [...]
CEEP policy paper: Energy market analysis of integration of the variable renewable energy sources into the EU energy systems
In the view of upcoming Central Europe Day of Energy conference where we will discuss the Offshore Wind potential in Europe, CEEP presents the first policy paper which discusses the transmission system costs associated with Variable RES – one of the key factors which [...]
The CEEP’s Board of Directors has appointed Mr Mariusz Kawnik as its new Executive Director. Mr Kawnik will replace Maciej Jakubik, whose four-year term ends in October. Prior to joining CEEP, Mr Kawnik held various positions in the Polish public administration and [...]
The third and fourth edition of the CEEP reports touches on an important topic: prospects for offshore wind development in Central Europe. Wind energy has become a major driver for RES deployment in Europe and seems fundamental to reaching Europe’s climate and energy [...]
Following up to the event on the EU ETS funding mechanisms, Central Europe Energy Partners (CEEP) in cooperation with European Roundtable of Climate Change and Sustainable Transition (ERCST) presents an updated paper on size and functioning of the funding mechanisms [...]
Central Europe Energy Partners (CEEP), an organisation representing the interests of the energy companies from Central Europe, welcomes the possibility to provide feedback to the Commission’s Inception Impact Assessment on the revision of the RED II. CEEP believes [...]
CEEP acknowledges a great potential of offshore renewable energy, particularly offshore wind, which can become an important element of the future EU energy system. This is why, we welcome the Commission’s initiative to draft the Offshore Renewable Energy Strategy. The [...]

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.
