The NECP provides a roadmap for substantial reduction in greenhouse gas emissions (GHG). The core objective is set for 40% reduction in GHG emissions in 2030 compared to 1990, or more than 55% compared to 2005 levels. The policy measures foreseen for GHG emissions reduction and removal include:

- Shutdown of lignite-fired power plants and interconnection of autonomous island systems;

- Promoting natural gas as an intermediate fuel for reducing the carbon footprint of the energy system;

- Promoting renewable energy sources (RES), storage systems and fuel production from RES;

- Improvement in energy efficiency of buildings, industry and infrastructures;

- Reduction in emissions in the transport sector.
