Finland's Integrated Energy and Climate Plan contains Finland's national targets and the related policy measures to achieve the EU's 2030 energy and climate targets. The Energy and Climate Plan addresses all five dimensions of the EU Energy Union: decarbonisation, energy efficiency, energy security, internal energy markets and research, innovation and competitiveness.
The EU has set Finland a 2030 national target for reducing greenhouse gas emissions in the non-emissions trading sector by 39 % compared to 2005. At the same time, emissions from the land-use sector should be kept lower than the computational reduction in emissions from sinks. Finland also aims to increase the share of renewable energy to at least 51 % of the final energy use and to 30 % of the final energy use in road transport. With regard to energy efficiency, the target is that the final energy consumption does not exceed 290 TWh.
The Finnish Energy and Climate Plan outlines the impact of existing policy measures on the projected evolution of greenhouse gas emissions, renewable energy and energy efficiency up to 2040. In addition, the plan describes the effects of the planned policy measures on the energy system, greenhouse gas emissions and sinks, economic development, the environment and public health. The Plan also assesses the impact of planned and existing policy measures on investment.
