The HVDC grid projects seem to have what it takes to become a so-called ‘Project of Common Interest’. This implies that they can get a preferential regulatory treatment thanks to the brand new EU Regulation for Energy Infrastructure that has been adopted last year to speed up projects that are of strategic importance for Europe. In this presentation I give an overview of the new set of regulatory tools that the Energy Infrastructure Package provides, their status of implementation, and what is next.
