Background:

Under the newly adopted governance regulation, EU Member States are required to elaborate and submit their national energy and climate plans (NECPs) for the period of 2021-2030.

This session will highlight the opportunities available to engage in the national elaboration of the NECPS and stress the benefits of involving civil society and local authorities in the NECP development process.

The session will draw from the results of the LIFE PlanUp project, focusing on the NECPs of five countries (Spain, Italy, Poland, Romania, and Hungary). It will present available data as well as good practice examples in the buildings, agriculture, and transport sectors. It will further highlight the need to include different levels of subnational governments like cities and regions to deliver energy transition.

The event will be an opportunity to engage with different stakeholders and to participate in shaping Europe’s energy and climate future.
