Background

In November 2018, the Energy Community Ministerial Council adopted the Recommendation 2018/01/EnC-MC, recognizing, that the development of integrated national energy and climate plans by the Contracting Parties would support the attainment of the long-term energy and climate policy objectives, reduce the administrative burden and enhance transparency while promoting investor certainty in the region.

The adoption of Governance Regulation 2018/1999 on 30 November 2021 marked the next step. Adopted and adapted by Decision 2021/14/MC-EnC, the Regulation sets common rules for planning, reporting and monitoring on energy and climate policies and targets. In particular, the Contracting Parties will be required to submit National Energy and Climate Plans (NECPs).

According to the article 3 of the consolidated Governance Regulation, by 30 June 2024, and subsequently by 1 January 2029 and every ten years thereafter, each Contracting Party shall notify to the Energy Community Secretariat an integrated national energy and climate plan. The integrated national energy and climate plan shall consist of the sections set out in paragraph 2 of the Article 3 and in Annex I of the Regulation. The first plan shall cover the period from 2025 to 2030, taking into account the longer term perspective. The subsequent plans shall cover the ten-year period immediately following the end of the period covered by the previous plan. NECP should lay down the pathway to achieve targets set for 2030 regarding the increase of renewable energy in overall energy consumption, increased energy efficiency and reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. Further, the NECPs should also include a perspective until 2050 in order to ensure consistency with long-term relevant policy objectives at EU, UNFCCC and Energy Community level.
