Slovak National Energy and Climate Plan

Last updated: 28 February 2022

Slovak NECP was approved by the Slovak Government on December 11, 2019 and subsequently it was submitted to the Commission on December 20, 2019.  Slovak national target for GHG in non-ETS sectors is - 20% compared to 2002 level. The planned total share of RES for 2030 is 19,2%, which is lower than the EU 2030 goal of 32%. Share of RES in transport  is projected to be 14% by 2030. Level of grid interconnection (electricity connectivity) is set to 52% in 2030, being higher than the 15% EU2030 goal. Slovak ambitious projected contribution to the EU energy efficiency target is 15,7 Mtoe for primary and 10,3 Mtoe for final energy consumption by 2030.

Taking into account new EU decarbonisation target in 2050 and new European legislation related to more ambitious targets in GHG, RES and energy efficiency, Slovakia has to prepare a draft update of this NEPC by 30 June 2023, and subsequently by 1 January 2033 and every 10 years thereafter, or shall provide the Commission with reasons justifying why the plan does not require updating [Article 14(1) of the Regulation (EU) 2018/1999].

The overall budget is not available, as NECP contains many policies in different sectors. CPS Energy model based on Primes lists approximate investments in the industrial sector in 2021-2030 period at amount of nearly 3 357 million EUR. Required costs for implementation of policies, which are part of NECP, will come from national budget, EU funds, as well as from private soúrces.


Although NECPs were laid out before the Covid-19 crisis happened, their completion, confirmed in 2021, is linked to the implementation of national recovery measures.
