Hungary has raised its 2030 target for a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions from 1990 levels from 40% to "at least 50%" in a draft of its updated National Energy and Climate Plan, the Energy Affairs Ministry said on Monday, according to a report by state news wire MTI.

The updated draft also lowers the target for final energy consumption from 785 PJ to 750 PJ, while raising the target for the share of renewable energy in final consumption from 21% to 29%. 

Hungary's installed solar capacity is set to reach 12 GWh by 2030, double the earlier target.

Hungary will submit its final updated National Energy and Climate Plan by the end of June 2024, after Brussels weighs in on changes in the draft, the ministry said.
