The EU’s 2030 Energy Strategy as agreed in 2014 set a framework for climate and energy for the period 2021 to 2030. The EU subsequently adopted the ‘Clean Energy for all Europeans’ legislative package implementing this Strategy.
Under this legislation, Member States are required to set out their domestic objectives, policies and measures covering the five dimensions of the EU’s Energy Union from 2021 to 2030 in National Energy and Climate Plans (NECP). The Government published the UK’s draft NECP in January 2019. On 18 June, the European Commission published non-binding recommendations for the UK’s draft Plan, and the Government will carefully consider and respond to these as we prepare our final version of the Plan.
