NECP's highlights:

NECP REPORT download


The final NECP includes a slightly lower target of renewable energy in the transport sector (14% by 2030). This is in line with the European Directive (REDII) and an improvement compared to the draft NECP. However, 14% is still too high a target because it foresees high reliance on unsustainable biofuels based on food and feed crops.


Agriculture (excluding energy consumption) accounts for 16% of Romanian greenhouse gas emissions. However, the sector remains the most problematic, with very few measures to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.  The final plan includes only existing measures as outlined in the Romanian Rural Development programme with no additional provisions to tackle one of the main sources of emissions in the country. 


The final plan mentions the Long-term Renovation Strategy (LTRS), which aims to improve energy efficiency, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and increase renewable energy in the total energy consumption through the renovation of the national building stock. The LTRS includes the most prominent and ambitious measures to achieve increased renewable and energy efficiency targets.
