ACER’s decision on the allocation of costs for the Lithuanian part of the Electricity interconnection between Lithuania and Poland (LitPol link), published today, indicates that, although this interconnection provides benefits to several Member States beyond Lithuania, the latter, as a net beneficiary of the project, does not need financial compensations for the investment from the other Member States benefiting from the project under the Cross-Border Cost Allocation (CBCA) framework. LitPol is one of the Projects of Common Interest (PCIs) identified by the EU to strengthen the continent’s energy infrastructure. PCIs benefit from an improved regulatory regime, including the possibility for Project Promoters to submit a CBCA request. ACER decides on the allocation of costs (CBCA decisions) for a given PCI when the National Regulatory Authorities (NRAs) of the concerned Member States are unable to reach an agreement within six months of the request.
