    Clean Energy Package and 2030 targets

    The 2022 Energy Community Ministerial Council adopted 2030 energy and climate targets to reduce primary and final energy consumption, accelerate the uptake of renewables and reduce greenhouse gas emissions to achieve climate neutrality by 2050. The Ministers agreed to national renewables targets that amount to an overall Energy Community target of 31.0% of energy from renewable sources in gross final energy consumption by 2030. To boost energy efficiency and energy savings, they agreed to cap the amount of primary energy consumption at 129.88 Mtoe and the amount of final energy consumption at 79.06 Mtoe at the level of the Energy Community. They also agreed to cap the total greenhouse gas emissions for the Energy Community at 427.64 million metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent by 2030, which represents a decrease of 60.9% below 1990 levels.

    A year earlier, the ministers adopted five key legislative acts stemming from the EU’s Clean energy for all Europeans package. The acts were further adapted with the 2022 decisions.

  • Just transition Initiative

    Just transition Initiative

    In order to be considered “just” and “inclusive”, energy transition processes need to ensure fairness via equal distribution, full recognition of rights and labour contributions, equal participation in decision-making procedures, and equal capabilities in renewable energy outcomes. This is why it is crucial to conceive a “just energy transition” NOT as a fixed set of rules, but rather as a vision, a process based on dialogue and an agenda for a participatory framework that prioritizes the needs and concerns of local residents, particularly vulnerable stakeholders. 

    The Energy Community Secretariat manages four interlinked projects, which together represent the key dimensions of the Just Transition Initiative.

  • EU4ENERGY Governance

    EU4ENERGY Governance

    The EU4Energy Programme Phase II was launched by the European Union, as part of its Regional Action Programme – East. The action builds on the work of the EU4Energy Programme Phase I and the lessons learnt from it. 

    The new phase spans between 2021 and 2026. The objective of EU4Energy Project Phase II is to foster the clean energy transition and decarbonisation in Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine and to contribute to the post 2020 Eastern Partnership architecture. These countries have already signed Association Agreements, including a Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Area (DCFTA), with the EU in the energy sector and they have a status of Contracting Parties within the scope of the Energy Community Treaty. The action will provide support through evidence-based energy policy design and through a transposition and implementation of the Energy Community acquis / DCFTA / EU best practice legal framework.
