Laws No. 9.991 and 13.280 on Energy Efficiency in the electricity sector and on National Program for Energy Conservation Funds
Through the Law No. 13,280 (which amends Law 9.991) the National Program for Energy Conservation (Procel) became entitled to 20 per cent of the funds that electricity distributors must invest in energy efficiency actions.
It is estimated that the law will help direct to Procel roughly R$ 100 million per year. It also created the Energy Efficiency Steering Committee (CGEE) and provides to the National Electric Energy Agency (Aneel) the authority to define the schedule of payments and payment of the funds that are to be invested in Procel.
