Description:The law on the Management of Energy defines the conditions, framework and application processes of Algerias national policy to manage energy. The law establishes a general framework for the rational use of energy, energy conservation and energy efficiency, the development of renewable energy and environmental protection through reducing GHG emissions and air pollution. The promotion of renewable energy is one of the pillars on the National Programme for the Management of Energy (Programme national pour la maîtrise de lénergie) established in the law. The programme is funded by the National Fund for the Management of Energy (le Fonds national pour la maîtrise de lénergie), financed by an incremental tax on conventional energy consumption, government funds, revenue from fines and penalties imposed under the law, and a tax on high-energy consuming products. It also allows the use of financial, fiscal and custom duty-related incentives for activities and projects related to energy efficiency and renewable energy.
