New Hungarian energy strategy
The new Hungarian Energy Strategy 2007-2020 approved recently by the government may be discussed by the Parliament at the beginning of next year.
The last version of the Energy Policy dates back to 1993, while international and domestic conditions changed substantially since that time. The energy demand and the environmental damages, as a consequence, decreased, private actors appeared on the energy market, and the conditions for competition on the market changed, while a growing import-dependence and a still high rate of fossil energy remained. The main objective of the strategy is to find a balance between security, competitiveness and sustainability in the energy sector. The document is a framework strategy, the detailed policies and measures are in other documents, like the Hungarian Renewable Energy Strategy and National Strategy on Energy Efficiency and the Energy Efficiency Action Plan.
