The 2012 Electric Coverage Expansion Plan 2013-2017 (PIEC) aims to increase the diversity of technologies in the energy mix.

In order to achieve the objective, UPME is working with the operation of the different investment funds in electric energy and proposes to design a national policy in charge of promoting research and development and innovation of renewable energy sources and other environmentally sustainable alternatives. The plan considers scenarios of wind addition of 100 MW per year between 2015 and 2017.

The plan proposes measurement of energy potentials by developing studies on hydro, wind and solar potential.

This record is superseded by:Electric Coverage Expansion Plan 2016-2020 (Plan Indicativo de Expansión de Cobertura de Energía Eléctrica PIEC 2016-2020, PIEC)
