Obtaining funding through JETP commitments is one achievement in itself, while using it for the right purpose of making the transition to renewable energy (RE) is another. The JETP Action Plan has the mission of accelerating early retirement and avoiding the construction of power plants before and after 2030. In this way JETP aims to limit emissions to 290 Million tons by 2030 and increase the share of RE in the total energy mix to 34%-more than the government's previous target of 28% by the same year.
The question is, will the JETP accommodate the government's target, or go its own way? It is important to clarify this to measure how much the country is trying to increase the RE mix outside the JETP agreement. Meanwhile, there are several rules and policies that contradict and have the potential to be a major challenge in implementing the JETP action plan.
