This report is the result of the roundtables that were conducted in the 11 partner countries of the C-Track 50 project on multi-level governance and challenges faced by long term policy and energy planning.
This report provides information about national long-term energy and climate policy priorities, indicates bottom- up recommendations on targets, priorities and actions for 2050 and sets recommendations for multi – level governance improvements in each project country.
This report starts with the description of the national energy planning, including the synopsis of the energy planning process and a description of the national policy plans for energy and climate in place for each country. Next, the report provides an overview of bottom-up recommendations on targets, priorities and actions for 2050 in four sectors: buildings & infrastructure sector, transport, agriculture and waste. The recommendations have been discussed and validated in three national roundtables held at each country level, with the participation of regional and national level stakeholders. Finally, the report provides recommendations for each project partner country regarding multi-level governance and collaboration models at sub-national levels in order to support ambitious long-term energy and climate targets.
Local and regional authorities play a decisive role in the attainment of the EU’s long-term climate and energy targets. C–Track 50 aims to support local and regional authorities in energy and climate planning, so as to contribute considerably towards achieving the 2030 and 2050 EU energy and climate targets. More specifically, C–Track 50 will promote multi-level governance and support local and regional authorities in developing, financing and implementing ambitious integrated sustainable energy and climate policy action plans in order to achieve climate resilience and carbon neutrality by 2050.
