It will also develop a Climate Action Plan 2050 describing further reduction steps to be taken up to the target year of 2050 in the light of the European targets and the outcome of the Paris climate change conference in 2015 and will back it up with actions developed within a broad-based dialogue process.

Targets: Reduce greenhouse gas emissions by at least 40 percent on 1990 levels by 2020.

Measures: 

  • Emission trading, European an international climate policy
  • Climate change mitigation in electricity generation, including by continuing to upgrade the conventional power station fleet and expanding the use of renewables
  • The national action plan on Energy Efficiency (NAPE) with the following key areas:
    • energy efficiency in the building sector
    • energy-saving as a business opportunity and way of generating returns, and
    • individuals responsibility for energy efficiency 
  • climate-friendly building and housing strategy 
  • climate action measures in the transport sector
  • action to reduce non-energy-related emissions in the following sectors:
