Portugal's National Energy and Climate Plan for 2021-2030

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. It was approved by Council of Ministers' resolution 53/2020.

The plan establishes the following objectives : 1) to limit the GHG emissions, to build a strategy based on renewable sources of energy on the path to a carbon neutral economy (electrification of the economy and consumption, promote electric vehicles,introduce of renewable gases); 2) Rehabilitating and making buildings more efficient, to promote active and shared mobility, reinforce public transport and electric mobility ; 3) to diversificate energy sources by the development of endogenous renewable energy resources; 4) to promote interconnectivity in energy markets and systems; 5) to invest in public and private research, innovation and competitiveness.
