The Energy Policy is a strategic document setting out principal goals and the framework for power industry development in the long term.
It establishes different targets for energy production, including for renewable energy sources, increasing energy efficiency, attaining energy security, and improving power distribution networks. The Plan sets three long-term objectives and 11 priority actions.
The Energy Policy is overseen by the Ministry of Economy, and is to be updated every five years.
Renewable energy sources:The Energy Poicy determines that developing renewable energy sources for heat, particularly through biomass and geothermal energy, is to be prioritised. It sees renewable energy sources as possibly increasing their share in overall electricity production to as much as 19% in 2010, 24% in 2020 and 27% in 2030. Biomass is seen as having the greatest potential as an energy source for heat and electricity, and biofuels as the most promising alternative to fossil fuels for transport. The targets for the use of biofuels arising from the EU directive 2003/30/EC , calculated on the basis of the energy content of motor fuels, are 2% at the end of 2005 and 5.75 % at the end of 2010.
For biomass, the following development objectives are esablished:
Energy Efficiency Measures: aimed at increasing energy efficiency as determined as follows:
Specific priority areas include:
