European Commission publishes template for National Renewable Energy Action Plans

The template regulates in detail how the member states have to set up their Renewable Energy Actions Plans until June 2010.

On the 1st July the European Commission published the template for the National Renewable Energy Action Plans (NREAPs).

As it is explained in the introduction of the template: “The purpose of this template is to ensure, that these action plans are complete, cover all requirements and are comparable with each other.” These action plans will be of utmost importance for the future development of the renewable energy sources. Heinz Kopetz, President of AEBIOM and member of the WBA Board stresses that its members are invited to cooperate with their national governments in developing the national action plans in their country. AEBIOM have already conducted several workshops – on biogas, on pellets, on district heat with biomass - to prepare roadmaps and recommendations that should be used for the work on the national RAPs.

The use of this template is obligatory for EU member states.
