Ireland’s National Energy and Climate Plan 2021-2030

Last updated: 13 October 2021
A final version of the NECP will be submitted later this year.This first draft of the NECP took into account energy and climate policies developed to date, the levels of demographic and economic growth identified in the Project 2040 process and includes all of the climate and energy measures set out in the National Development Plan 2018-2027. This was the first step in the process of putting together our final National Energy and Climate Plan and further iterations of the plan have taken into account additional policies and measures and the all-of-Government climate action plan to completed in 2019. Ireland’s draft NECP was approved by the then Government in late 2018 and submitted to the European Commission. Since then, the current NECP has been developed further by the Department, and incorporates the goals and additional policies identified by the Government as part of the Climate Action Plan.
