EU Energy Union – Denmark’s National Energy and Climate Plan (NECP)

The EU Regulation on the Governance of the Energy Union and Climate Action went into force in December 2018. One of the key elements of the new regulation is that Member States must work out an integrated national energy and climate plan (NECP) for the period 2020-2030 covering all five dimensions of the EU Energy Union:

  • Decarbonisation and deployment of renewable energy
  • Energy efficiency
  • Energy security
  • Internal energy market
  • Research, innovation and competitiveness

According to the Governance regulation, all member states had to submit their NECP to the EU Commission before the end of 2019. Denmark submitted its NECP on 20 December 2019.
