The EuroAsia Interconnector, the EuroAfrica Interconnector, and the Türkiye-north Cyprus Interconnector are infrastructure initiatives in the Eastern Mediterranean aimed at meeting various energy policy goals. Their ultimate objective is to provide a secure and sustainable supply of electricity to the countries involved, while also ending Cyprus's and Israel’s electricity grid isolation. Consequently, multiple actors, including the EU, are supporting these projects through political backing, funding through the EU Projects of Common Interest program, and favourable regulations.
