Measures in the energy and industry sectors stem from obligations under European legislation. The main measures targeting the transport and domestic heating sectors are: reconnection to the gas distribution network; reconnection to central heating; creating new connections to central heating. Fuel quality requirements are also envisaged; creating new connections to the gas distribution network; introduction of low emission zones by the municipalities for the transport and modernization of the fleet by allowing the import of only vehicles with lower emissions of harmful substances into the ambient air, which is considered as a potential measure.

These measures are expected to contribute to the reduction of emissions of non-methane volatile organic compounds, sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides.
