Abstract

Communication from the Commission to the European Parliament pursuant to the second subparagraph of Article 251(2) of the EC Treaty concerning the common position adopted by the Council with a view to the adoption of a Regulation of the European Parliament and of the Council laying down general rules for the granting of Community financial aid in the field of trans-European transport and energy networks, COM(2007) 152 final

On 14 July 2004, the Commission adopted a proposal for a Regulation of the European Parliament and of the Council laying down general rules for the granting of Community financial aid in the field of trans-European transport and energy networks, which is a proposal to succeed Council Regulation (EC) No 2236/95.

The objective of the Regulation is to define the conditions, means and the procedures for the granting of Community aid to projects of common interest in the field of trans-European transport and energy networks on the basis of article 155, paragraph 1 of the Treaty.

The original Commission proposal was amended on 24 May 2006, mainly to take account of the inter-institutional agreement on the Community's financial framework for the period 2007-2013 of April 2006.

The budgetary resources set out in the Commission's initial proposal significantly exceed the amounts established in the financial framework 2007-2013 for TENs both in the fields of transport and energy. The revision of the initial "TEN-Regulation" proposal, therefore, results from the need to adapt the regulation to the budgetary resources confirmed in April 2006.

The resources established in the financial framework represent only 40% of the amount initially proposed for the transport sector, and 45% of that proposed for the energy sector.

This also makes it necessary to adapt the procedures for the granting of aid (in particular, the procedures for project selection and rates of support)
