Renewable in % Electricity Production

STEM is also in charge of implementing the renewable energy policy and is the accounting authority for certificates and guarantees of origin since 2015.

The national target of a share of 49% of renewables in final consumption in 2020 was achieved in 2012 (around 56% in 2019). The country is expected to reach a share of 60% of renewables in final consumption by 2027 and 65% by 2030, according to its indicative trajectory. This target is included in the country's NECP.
