Article 4 of Directive 2009/28/EC requires a national renewable energy action plan to be adopted by each Member State. These Action Plans define Member States' national targets for the share of energy from renewable sources to be consumed in transport, power generation and heating and cooling in the year 2020, taking into account the impact of other energy efficiency policy measures on the final Energy consumption, as well as the appropriate measures to achieve these national overall targets.

Based on the National Action Plan, the share of renewable energy sources in power generation is 16%. In the categories of heating/cooling and transport it stands at 23.5% and 10%, respectively.

More information on Cyprus national targets and the measures to be reached can be found in the National Action Plan 2010 - 2020 on the website of the Energy Department of the Ministry of Energy, Commerce, Industry and Tourism.
