In order to ensure a diversified and stable energy supply for Europe there is a need for increased cross-border trading in electricity. However, the current framework for regulating, building and financing interconnectors – which, simply put, are cross-border transmission lines that are not funded through the regulated asset base of a utility or monopoly transmission company, or transmission system operator (TSO) – in the European Union is broken. It might limp on for a few more years but it will need a complete overhaul sooner rather than later.

The EU had agreed that minimum electricity interconnection levels between member states should be increased to at least 10% of demand, as endorsed by the Barcelona European Council in 2002. While interconnection into some member states has exceeded the 10% target since 2010, the overall picture is very mixed, with southern Europe, the UK and Ireland continuing to experience significant bottlenecks and falling short of the rather limited target.
