On 2 February 2006, the government of Belarus approved the National Energy Saving Programme for 2006-2010. The programme's primary aim was to reduce GDP energy intensity, and replace fuel and energy imports by local resources.

Part of the programme involves renewable energy sources. The use of local, waste, alternative and renewable energy resources is to increase by 1.7 million tons of fuel equivalent. Special attention is paid to the development of alternative and renewable energy resources.

The programme determines the amount of fuel-energy resources and their distribution among the national state governmental bodies, state-run organisations and regions of Belarus.
