supporting the implementation of the Operational Programme for Reducing Greenhouse Gas Emissions (OP GHG) and the National efficiency energy action plan for the 2008–2016 period, which are the key documents for the attainment of objectives laid down in Decision 406/2009/EC;
reducing gaps in the implementation of OP GHG 2020, which will allow a faster and more cost-effective reduction of greenhouse gas emissions by 2030;
increasing personnel capacities and competences, which will enable high-quality drafting and the implementation of measures and thus GHG emissions reduction by 2030;
training personnel for a faster transition to a low-carbon society (LCS);
ensuring emissions reduction in a way that contributes to achieving other climate, environmental and sectoral targets, e.g. the adaptation to climate change, reduction of emissions from air pollutants, ensuring the security of energy supplies, etc.;
enabling mobilisation and use of other, complementary funding sources;
increasing cost efficiency in the implementation of measures, achieving substantial additional benefits and faster implementation of measures.
