Briefing: How NECPs can set Paris in motion in every country

EU Member States are, through the new ‘Governance of the Energy Union Regulation’, required to develop ten year Integrated National Energy and Climate Plans (NECPs). 

With the word ‘integrated’, the NECPs present a new regime in EU Climate and Energy Policy making. The European Union’s credibility in the international climate policy arena depends heavily on its capacity to make a coherent contribution. However, the current EU climate and energy policy regime is not driving transformative change.

This biefing paper presents our proposals to improve the current NECPs.
