An Assessment of final NECPs in South East Europe
In this report, Agora Energiewende examines whether the final National Energy and Climate Plans (NECPs) submitted to the European Commission by Bulgaria, Greece and Romania stack up against long term decarbonisation targets in the energy sector.
The NECP of Bulgaria, Greece and Romania have improved in terms of their contributions to addressing climate mitigation compared with their draft versions. The plans have taken on board the recommendations of the Commission. In particular, the NECP of Greece stands out within the region in terms of phasing out lignite from the electricity system and through the achievement of a high share of renewables in electricity and heating and cooling.
