Abstract
The Latvia National Renewable Energy Action Plan for 2010-2020 is a sectoral document. Latvia s medium-term energy policy planning documents and legislation consolidate the objective of increasing the share of renewable energy sources in the consumption of electricity and transport fuel, however, Latvia needs to establish a unified strategy so that it is possible to fulfil the requirements provided for by Directive 2009/28/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 23 April 2009 on the promotion of the use of energy from renewable sources and amending and subsequently repealing Directives 2001/77/EC and 2003/30/EC which prescribes mandatory targets for European Union Member States. Pursuant to Annex I(A) to Directive 2009/28/EC, Latvia s overall objective, provided for by the draft action plan, is to increase the share of energy produced from renewable energy sources in gross final energy consumption from 32.6% in 2005 to 40% in 2020. To fulfil the requirements of Directive 2009/28/EC, the Republic of Latvia National Renewable Energy Plan for implementing Directive 2009/28/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 23 April 2009 on the promotion of the use of energy from renewable sources and amending and subsequently repealing Directives 2001/77/EC and 2003/30/EC by 2020 has been drawn up in accordance with the European Commission s 30 June 2009 Decision No L 182/33 Commission Decision of 30 June 2009 establishing a template for National Renewable Energy Action Plans under Directive 2009/28/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council.
