Cyprus’ Integrated National Energy and Climate Plan

Executive
Plan
Passed in 2020
The National Energy and Climate (ENCP) Plan is a ten-year integrated document mandated by the European Union to each of its member states in order for the EU to meet its overall greenhouse gases emissions targets.    

The plan establishes 'key policy planning priorities' with specific measures :
1) GHG emissions and removals : promotion of natural gas and RES, reduction of emissions in the transport, agricultural and waste sector, increasing carbon sinks and improving energy efficiency in building and infrastructure; 
2) Renewable energy sources : promotion of synergies with other sectors (Energy Efficiency, Waste, Security of supply) to promotion RES in all energy sectors, support schemes for RES to participate in the Electricity Market, etc; 
3) Energy efficiency : energy efficiency obligation scheme for energy distributors, implementation of information and education measures, etc; 
4) Security of supply : increasingthe flexibility of the national energy system
5) Internal Energy market : promotion of electricity interconnectivity of Cyprus via the project of common interest EuroAsia Interconnector, etc;
