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 has set the following key objectives : 1) reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions for making possible the transition to a climate neutral economy by 2050, waste management is an important part of the plan (revising the national and regional waste management plans); 2) to increase the RES in gross final energy consumption; 3) to improve energy efficiency with measures related to transport and buildings; 3) to reduce the share of lignite in power generation by implementing a relevant front-loaded programme.
