CBA Forum meeting on Energy Sectors


The fourth DG REGIO/JASPERS Cost-Benefit Analysys Forum meeting was held in Brussels on 15-16 May 2018 and focused on energy infrastructure.

The meeting was targeted to participants from Member States' authorities, representatives of the European Commission and JASPERS partners.




The JASPERS Networking Platform was created to complement JASPERS project advisory operations by implementing knowledge sharing and capacity building activities, as well as fostering dissemination of good practices and exchange of experiences among all EU member states, pre-accession countries and other JASPERS Stakeholders.



The JASPERS Networking Platform is open to relevant authorities from all EU Member States (EU 28), as well as pre-accession Countries.


As announced during the CBA Guide Launch event on 2nd July 2015 in Brussels, DG REGIO and JASPERS have decided to establish regular CBA forums under the Networking Platform for exchanging good practices and experiences in carrying out CBAs so as to support the improvement of stakeholders’ knowledge and the effective application of the methodology to specific investment projects.







The CBA Forum meetings are meant to be held at expert/practitioner level, and are targeted to officials from Managing Authorities, Intermediate bodies, Beneficiaries, and other relevant bodies that are directly involved in drafting and providing guidance to project promoters and consultants, as well as in assessing projects and CBA documentation.


The fourth CBA Forum meeting focused on the methodologies presented in the CBA guide for the energy sectors.

The meeting started with an overview provided by DG ENERGY on the key aspects of EU policy related to the energy sector, and continued with presentations by DG REGIO on Cohesion Policy support for EU's energy policy agenda in the 2014-2020 period and by DG COMP on state aid rules applicable to the sector.  

JASPERS provided a detailed presentation of the methodological framework for CBA in energy projects (chapter 5 of the CBA guide), highlighting lessons learned and challenges from project appraisal.

During the second day, a few case studies on concrete project examples and concrete experiences were presented by representatives of Poland, Malta and Lithuania.

The meeting concluded with a panel discussion which focused on exchange of experiences and a comprehensive Q&A session with the audience.
