The European Commission has appointed four coordinators in the energy sector. Their task will consist of monitoring and facilitating the implementation of four important European energy projects by offering strategic support and practical advice. Mario Monti, the former Commissioner for Competition, will be in charge of coordinating the high voltage France-Spain connection. Georg Wilhelm Adamowitsch will be responsible for the offshore wind connections in the Baltic and North Sea areas (Denmark-Germany-Poland). Jozias Johannes van Aartsen will deal with the Nabucco gas connection project and Wladyslaw Mielczarski will be responsible for the implementation of power connection between Germany, Poland and Lithuania. The coordinators have each been appointed for a term of four years.
