Report: Fit for (Flop) 55: Lessons from the National Energy and Climate Plans to achieve a climate-neutral Europe [June 2021]

If Europe wants to be a frontrunner in the fight against climate change, substantial reductions in carbon emissions are required across sectors of the economy. Since the EU launched its Green Deal in December 2019, the Clean Energy Package (2018) which includes the Governance Regulation and the Effort Sharing Regulation, has quickly become out of date.

In this report, PlanUp gives recommendations on the upcoming revisions of Governance Regulation and the Effort Sharing Regulation, to ensure their coherence with the Fit for 55 package and more broadly, with the objectives of the Paris Agreement.

Energy Cities' report on the final NECPs [Oct 2020]

Is the key role of local authorities acknowledged?

This report has verified to which extent the key role of local authorities was better reflected in the final National Energy and Climate Plans (NECPs), compared to the draft NECPs in 2019 (the previous analysis of Energy Cities can be found here). The report provides recommendations on how EU countries should improve the acknowledgement of local authorities’ key role in their NECPs, in particular when updating their plans in 2023/24 as foreseen by the EU mechanism governing these plans, the Energy Union and Climate Action Governance Regulation.

Strong climate and energy governance arrangements can mobilize actors and resources, foster public support and ownership, and ensure that responsibilities and benefits are shared equitably.

This report presents good practices in energy and climate governance in the form of case studies from seven EU Member States –the Netherlands, Estonia, Ireland, France, Germany, Sweden and Luxembourg – as well as from outside Europe, by focusing on Canada and the US State of California. The objective is to highlight how these good practices have managed to involve LRAs, CSOs, other stakeholders and the public in effective participation processes.
