Establishing the governance structure of the National Energy and Climate Plan (NECP) and developing the Long-Term Strategy (LTS) of Romania

The commission helped the Ministry of Energy and Ministry of Environment, Waters and Forests in Romania by providing assistance in developing a plan for the implementation of the National Energy and Climate Plan (adopted in October 2021) and drafting the Long-Term Strategy (due from December 2019).  


Reaching its 2030 and 2050 climate and energy targets is of paramount importance for the European Union. The project brought a strong contribution in monitoring the deployment of the Romanian NECP and the elaboration of the Romanian LTS, two key planning documents that Member States need to draft and implement under Governance Regulation (EU) 2018/1999.

Support delivered 

By putting at the same table and engaging in a complex consultation process more than 20 authorities, the project raised the awareness of all relevant public actors on their role in achieving the national and EU climate and energy targets, developed the most comprehensive energy and climate model of Romania, ellaborated the 1st LTS of the country and designed the model for governing, monitoring the implementation and reporting the progress of the NECP.

Results achieved 

The main results of the project were the elaboration of the National Energy and Climate Plan governance model, the LEAP_RO energy and climate model, and the first Long-Term Strategy of Romania. These tools and documents allow Romanian authorities to elaborate, evaluate the impact and implement measures and policies leading to the country achieving climate neutrality in 2050.
