Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all

ODS 7 - Energias renováveis e acessíveis

Portugal does not have natural resources of fossil origin, importing a significant amount of primary energy for consumption. In 2019, 74.2% (-1.7 p.p.) of the primary energy consumed was imported. Thus, national  easures and policies that foster both the growth of renewable energy production and the focus on increased energy efficiency are particularly important, while consuming less energy to achieve the same economic performance in terms of output. In addition to reducing national energy dependency, this strategy aims to reduce the pressure on the environment, in particular by reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
