Luxembourg's integrated National Energy and Climate Plan for 2021-2030

Executive
Plan
Passed in 2019
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 establishes the following central objectives: 
1) Decarbonisation: reduction of GHG emissions, increase the share of renewable energy in the gross final energy consumption by cooperating with other EU Member States;
2) Energy efficiency: new fossil-free single-purpose and residential buildings, developing renewable heating networks, preventing traffic through massive expansion of public transport and electromobility;
3) Energy security: reduce dependence on electricity imports by expanding renewable energy, intensify regional cooperation in the field of security of electricity and gas supply;
4) Internal energy market: no further development of national gas infrastructure, combining the sectors of electricity, heat and transport by means of sector coupling;
5) Research, innovation and competitiveness:  implementation of a nationwide energy transition 'zero carbon', promote resilient urban and spatial development in conjunction with urban/spatial planning, Luxembourg to become an attractive location for climate solutions providers and start-up, etc.
