Decree-Law no. 1/2011 (on the promotion, access, licensing, and development of electrical energy from renewable sources)
The Decree-Law also orders the General Directorate for Energy to come up every five years with a proposed Plan for Renewable Energies, to be approved by the adequate member of Government. Further to this Plan, a Strategic Paln for the Renewable Energy Sector (PESER) must establish the adequate Zones for the Development of Renewable Energies (ZDER).
The third chapter of the Decree-Law focuses on incentives to renewables. It notably exonerates renewable projects of taxes for five years (art. 13.1.a) and defines other incentives as well.
