Technical and process support to Member States

 

Countries: EU Member States

Donor: Directorate-General for Energy (DG Ener) & Directorate-General for Climate Action (DG-Clima)

Project partners: ICF Consulting Limited

The objective of this project is to contribute to a coherent and effective implementation of the Energy Union and Climate Action objectives (with a focus on energy and climate policies), specifically through supporting the timely delivery of draft and final integrated national energy and climate plans, ensuring Energy Union Governance deadlines are respected.

To achieve this objective, this project:

  • Establishes regular overviews of the state-of-play across all Member States in preparing their national plans, and highlights the current and upcoming Member State issues and challenges.
  • Develops and operates a communication platform to manage the country overview reports, country files, disseminate good practice and guidance, facilitate regional cooperation and manage the technical assistance activities.
  • Supports Member States, who ask for Commission assistance due to technical or administrative capacity constraints, to prepare both the draft and final national plans according to the process, timeline and template detailed in the preliminarily agreed Regulation on the Governance of the Energy Union.
