NATIONAL ENERGY AND CLIMATE PLANS OF DANUBE REGION COUNTRIES: targets, policies and projections
The Sustainable Energy Priority Area (PA2) of the EU Strategy for the Danube Region (EUSDR) has recently published the study “NATIONAL ENERGY AND CLIMATE PLANS IN THE DANUBE REGION“, providing a comparative assessment of the targets, measures and expected outcomes laid down in the National Energy and Climate Plans (NECPs) of EU member states belonging to the Danube Region, and the energy strategies of the non-EU Danube Region countries where NECPs are in progress. The analysis, prepared by the Regional Centre for Energy Policy Research (REKK) focuses on the planned development in the most important areas of energy consumption: electricity and gas markets, heating and cooling, transport, buildings and the industry sector.
At the two workshops we present the most important results of the analysis and discuss the lessons learnt with experts from the region. The insights and recommendations might provide useful assistance for the preparation of the upcoming NECPs of the non-EU Danube Region countries, as well as for the following updates/revisions of NECPs of EU member states.
The first workshop will focus on the ambitions and policy tools aimed at transforming in the electricity and gas markets in the region, while the second workshop will cover two important energy policy areas largely influencing decarbonisation efforts in the (yet) non-ETS sectors: the deployment of renewable energy in the heating and cooling sector, and the transport sector.
The webinar is jointly organised by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade of Hungary and REKK.
