France's Integrated Energy and Climate Plan

legislation type 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 Energy and Climate Plan addresses all five dimensions of the EU Energy Union: decarbonisation, energy efficiency, energy security, internal energy markets and research, innovation and competitiveness. 

The plan is based on two national energy and climate programming and governance documents:

1)  the multi-year energy program, which sets the priorities for actions of the public authorities in the field of energy for the next 10 years, divided into two 5-year periods. It deals with all energies and all the pillars of energy policy: control of energy demand, promotion of renewable energies, guarantee of security of supply, control of energy costs, balanced development of networks, etc.

2) the national low-carbon strategy, which is France's roadmap for leading the climate change mitigation policy. It provides guidelines for implementing the transition to a low-carbon economy in all sectors of activity. It defines objectives for reducing greenhouse gas emissions at the scale of France in the short and medium term - carbon budgets - and aims to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050.
