General Court

Judgment in Case T-295/20 Aquind and others v Commission

(Energy Market)

The applicants, Aquind Ltd, Aquind SAS and Aquind Energy Sàrl, are the promoters of an electricity interconnection project linking the electricity transmission networks of the United Kingdom and France (hereinafter the “Aquind interconnection project”).

Considered fundamental in the infrastructure needed to complete the internal energy market, this project has been included in the European Union’s list of “projects of common interest” (PCIs) by Delegated Regulation 2018/540.

As this list of EU PCIs is drawn up every two years, the list established by Delegated Regulation 2018/540 was replaced by that of Delegated Regulation 2020/389 (hereinafter the “contested regulation”). The new list, set out in the annex to the contested regulation, included the Aquind interconnector project on the list of projects no longer considered to be EU PCIs.

The applicants then brought an action before the General Court for annulment of the contested regulation in so far as it removed the Aquind interconnector project from the list of Union PCIs.
