    By 31 December 2017, minimum of 8% of total electricity consumed to come from renewable sources. By 31 December 2019, minimum of 12% of total electricity consumed comes from renewable sources. By 31 December 2021, minimum of 16% of total electricity consumed comes from renewable sources. By 31 December 2023, minimum of 18% of total electricity consumed comes from renewable sources. By 31 December 2025, minimum of 20% of total electricity consumed comes from renewable sources.

    Establishes special obligation for large energy users (power demand exceeding 300 kW) to achieve the above-mentioned targets individually. Renewable energy may be produced on site or purchased through contracts, whose price is capped by the Law at maximum US$113/MWh or its equivalent in the national currency. This price can be modified for new contracts after two years from the entry into force of the law takes effect if required by market conditions.

    Requires that all new homes and buildings for sale must undergo an energy performance evaluation (an energy performance diagnostic, or DPE), and receive an energy performance certificate. The certificate indicates both the level of energy consumption and the greenhouse gas (GHG) emission level, on a scale of A to G, with G being least efficient and highest GHG emissions. The diagnostic must be accompanied with recommendations on improving the buildings energy efficiency. The diagnostic and certificates must also be provided for rentals, and is to be provided for all new construction where the building permit was submitted after 1 July 2007. DPE applies to all public buildings, and public display of the certificate is mandatory.

    Provides guidance to all areas of action in the process to achieve domestic climate targets in line with the Paris Agreement. Areas of action include: energy, buildings, transport, trade and industry, agriculture and forestry. Key goal is to establish long-term targets aligned with national greenhouse gas neutrality by 2050, including sector-specific milestones for 2030. The plan will be fleshed out with programs and measures , with the first program to be adopted in 2018.

    2013 cap for emissions from fixed installations is set at 2,084,301,856 allowances as part of Phase 3.

    Between 2013-2020, this cap decreases each year by 1.74%, amounting to a reduction of 38,264,246 allowances each year (EU Emissions Cap). Auctioning is the default method for allocating allowances and 300 million allowances set aside in the New Entrants Reserve to fund the deployment of innovative renewable energy technologies and carbon capture and storage through the NER 300 programme (Phase 3).

    In 2021, the pace of annual reductions in allowances increases to 2.2%.(Phase 4).

This commitment implies a reduction of 22% of GHG and a reduction of 51% of Black Carbon. The 25% reduction could increase up to a 40% in a conditional manner, subject to a global agreement addressing important topics including international carbon price, carbon border adjustments, technical cooperation, access to low-cost financial resources and technology transfer, all at a scale commensurate to the challenge of global climate change. Within the same conditions, GHG reductions could increase up to 36%, and Black Carbon reductions to 70% by 2030.

    2013 cap for emissions from fixed installations is set at 2,084,301,856 allowances as part of Phase 3.

    Between 2013-2020, this cap decreases each year by 1.74%, amounting to a reduction of 38,264,246 allowances each year (EU Emissions Cap). Auctioning is the default method for allocating allowances and 300 million allowances set aside in the New Entrants Reserve to fund the deployment of innovative renewable energy technologies and carbon capture and storage through the NER 300 programme (Phase 3).

    In 2021, the pace of annual reductions in allowances increases to 2.2% as of 2021 as part of Phase 4. Phase 4 will also continue the free allocation of allowances as well as include low-carbon funding mechanisms (Phase 4).
