|Energy Efficiency Description:|
The objective of the program is to support the efficient use of energy in the production, transportation and distribution, storage and consumption of energy, attempting to achieve the highest sustainable development with the available technologies, minimising the environmental impact and optimising energy conservation and cost reduction. The program covers several policy areas including short-term policies: focusing on education and awareness on energy consumption, lamp replacement in households, increasing energy efficiency of appliances; and long-term policies: focusing on industry, commerce, buildings, cogeneration, public lighting and transport. Several sub-programs have been developed according to each sector.
The program aims to decrease electricity consumption by 6% and energy savings of 1500 MW by 2016.
