REACHING EUROPE'S 2030 CLIMATE AND ENERGY GOALS
EU countries are required to develop National Energy and Climate Plans (NECPs) as key instruments for the EU to deliver on 2030 climate and energy targets.
The NECPs are the framework for member states to outline their climate and energy targets, policies and measures to reach the 32% renewable energy target by 2030. The NECPs are crucial for the solar sector because each member state will set specific targets for solar deployment and define how they plan to achieve it.
SolarPower Europe is monitoring the National Energy and Climate Plans closely to ensure that governments’ ambitions live up to the huge potential of solar in Europe.
