Law 10.295/2001, establishing the National Conservation and Rational Energy Use Policy and Decree 4.059/2001

Legislative
Law
Passed in 2001
This Law creates the National Conservation and Rational Energy Use Policy charged with ensuring the efficient allocation of energy resources and protecting the environment.
 
 The law determines that one year after the Executive Power publishes the required levels of energy consumption and efficiency, a Targets Programme should be established to monitor the progressive evolution of these levels.
 
 Regarding energy demand-side policies, the law charges the Executive Power with establishing maximum levels of energy consumption and minimum levels of energy efficiency for machines and energy consuming apparatus produced or traded in the country. It also obliges the producers and importers of these items to observe these requirements at the risk of being fined. Further charges the Executive Power with developing mechanisms to promote energy efficiency in buildings constructed after the commencement of the law.
