The final plan highlights the importance of tackling transport emissions and sets the target of a minimum 14 % share of renewable energy in transport by 2030. First-generation biofuels (which come with significant concerns about environmental sustainability) account for half this target and second-generation biofuels for a quarter. The remainder are to be reached through electromobility.
The agricultural sector is a major source of greenhouse gas emissions in Hungary: emissions have increased steadily since 2011 and accounted for 11% of total emissions in 2017. However, the NECP lacks concrete measures to address these emissions.
Renewable energy for the heating and cooling sector is set to derive not only from more efficient use of biomass but also through renewables-based district heating. The goal is to reach approx. 30% renewable energy in the heating and cooling sector by 2030.

at the end of June 2019 the European Commission assessed the Hungarian draft plan

by June 2023 Member States are expected to update their draft plans
by December 2023 Member States are expected to submit their final updated plans
The final plan is only available in Hungarian.
A public consultation was neither held for the elaboration of the draft NECP, nor the final NECP. The Government chose instead to directly contact selected stakeholder groups, including CSOs and LRAs, in the form of questionnaires in August 2018 and November 2019.
The plan does not cater for multi-level energy and climate dialogue.
Only selected stakeholder groups could respond to the questionnaires on the NECP. While the survey on the elaboration of the draft NECP only included general information and not its full draft, the second questionnaire in November 2019 focused on the entire plan that was then submitted to the EU Commission.
In its final NECP, the Government only mentions the selected stakeholder groups it reached out to for its plan but does not provide a summary of their views, nor to which extent these were included in the finalised plan.
