Portugal submitted its recovery and resilience plan to the European Commission, as part of the EU Recovery and Resilience Facility.
The plan is composed of 20 different components that are structured in 3 main dimensions (Resilience, Climate transition, and Digital transition).
The dimension of climate transition includes 4 components that can be considered as directly relevant for the energy sector. This initiative is part of the component "sustainable mobility" (Component 15).
To support sustainable mobility and the improvement of public infrastructure, investments will be allocated to network expansion projects:
1) Expansion of the metro network of Lisbon (EUR 304 million)
2) Expansion of the metro network of Porto (EUR 299 million)
3) New light rail transit (LRT) line in the northeast of Lisbon (EUR 250 million)
4) New bus rapid transit (BRT) line in Porto, with vehicles powered with hydrogen or electricity (EUR 66 million)
