TALLINN - On Thursday, the Estonian government approved the presentation of the updated working version of the national energy and climate plan until 2030 to the European Commission.

The aim of the plan presented to the European Commission in 2019 is to provide precise information to the Estonian people, businesses, and other member states about how Estonia intends to achieve the energy and climate policy objectives agreed upon in the European Union. The updated working version has been compiled based on the national objectives related to legal acts, development documents, forecasts, and studies that have changed since 2019, as announced by the government communication office.

The plan's working version outlines seven areas -- energy, transport, buildings, agriculture, industrial processes, waste management, and the sector for land use, changes therein and forestry. To achieve the updated objectives and reduce greenhouse gas emissions, a total of 106 measures have been planned.

The final updated energy and climate plan must be submitted to the European Commission by June 30, 2024.
