Malta’s 2030 National Energy and Climate Plan

legislation type 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. 

Malta’s strategy under the Decarbonisation dimension is to ensure a transition to a low-carbon economy by a reduction of GHG emissions and an increase in renewable energy sources. 
 
In terms of Energy Security, Malta will follow its commitment to achieve a greater security of supply through the diversification of energy sources and suppliers. 

To ensure Malta's energy integration, the plan establishes policies and measures to increase the flexibility of the energy system. 

Malta will boost research, innovation and competitiveness : a national R&I strategy is expected to be finalised by 2020.
