NECP, Brussels publishes guidelines
Special focus on efficiency, RES, security of supply, emissions, and "just transition." Plans will need to reflect NRRPs. Drafts by June 2023
The EU Commission has released guidance for member states to review their integrated National
Energy and Climate Plans (NECPs).
In detail, Brussels has published a delegated regulation and guidelines. The latter outline four "principles and good practices." First, "driving greater ambitions to accelerate the green transition to climate neutrality and strengthen the resilience of the energy system in line with the Climate Act, the Fit for 55 package and REPowerEU." In this respect, "particular attention should be paid to renewable energy, energy efficiency, energy security and reduction of greenhouse gas emissions."
The second point involves "strengthening planning within NECPs to ensure a just and equitable transition, mitigating social and employment impacts, addressing labor and skills shortages, reducing energy poverty, and ensuring affordable access to essential services for all."
Third are "national goals and targets, including for financing, which are specific pathways to 2030 and 2050, in line with long-term national strategies."
Finally, " integrating adaptation goals and reflecting them, where relevant, in the five axes of the updated NECPs."
The Commission also highlights the need for member states to "fully reflect" in the NECPs "energy and climate investments and reforms in national recovery and resilience plans."
The deadline for submission of the draft updated NECPs is June 2023 while the final version is due in June 2024. The first "progress report" showing the progress made in implementing the initial NECPs is scheduled to be submitted to the Commission by March 15, 2023.
