Panel expert meeting | National Energy and Climate Plan 2021-2030



In January this year, the regulation on the governance of the Energy Union entered into force. Just a few days later, on time, the Ministry of Energy published the draft National Energy and Climate Plan for 2021-2030 (NECP)¸ required by this regulation. This is the second, next to the long-awaited Poland's Energy Policy until 2040, strategic document for the Polish energy industry.

What will the NECPs adoption process look like? How will the European Commission assess the national plans? How will this assessment affect the energy and climate goals declared by Poland? What will be the relation between Energy Policy of Poland and Polish NECP? How will NECP affect financing and implementation of future energy projects? These and other questions will be raised during the panel of experts meeting on March, 21, 2019.

The panel of experts will be an opportunity to present the Polish vision of NECP, as well as the process of coordination and assessment of integrated national plans by the European Commission. Therefore, Mr. Artur Runge-Meztger, Director in DG CLIMA responsible for climate strategy, confirmed his participation in this event. We expect that together we will be able to systematize the knowledge about the relations between PEP 2040 and NECP until 2040 and assess the impact of both documents on the implementation and financing of new projects in the energy sector.
