The NECP tracker is a tool that assesses where Member States stand in the implementation of their NECPs, by comparing the most recently released data for greenhouse gas emissions (EEA) and energy (Eurostat) with the trajectories outlined by Member States in their old and new NECPs until 2030. For each of the countries covered, the tool looks into overall and sectoral greenhouse gas emissions reduction pathways and some energy transition indicators.

The tool shows what Member States have promised in their NECPs (and/or other sectoral documents) and where they really stand. It provides key information to understand where gaps in ambition and implementation are that must be addressed in the final NECPs update, due June 2024.

Key findings

  • The draft NECP updates show marginal improvements in ambition compared to the NECPs currently in force, but still far from being in line with international commitments under the Paris Agreement to keep global temperatures below 1.5°C.
  • The implementation of current NECPs is not always advancing at the speed Member States committed to. In their final NECP update, Member States must pick up the pace in the deficient sectors.
  • Some draft NECP updates include inconsistencies related to the scope and definitions of data compared to other existing legislation and databases.
