Colombia's National Energy Plan: Energy Principles 2050

Executive
Plan
Passed in 2015
The National Energy Plan (PEN) was prepared by the Ministry of Mines and Energy and the Unit of Energy Mining Planning (UPME) in order to structure and implement a national energy policy. It replaces the National Energy Plan 2006-2025. The PEN has five specific objectives and two transversal ones. 

The specific ones are oriented to the projection of an efficient, productive, formal country and of opportunities in energy matters, and are the following: 1) Reliable supply and diversification of the energy basket, 2) Efficient demand management and incorporation of clean transport technologies, 3) Universalization and affordability of the energy service - energy equity, 4) International interconnection and infrastructure, and 5) Generation of value in the energy sector for the development of regions and populations. 

The cross-sections seek to have the technological supports, infrastructure, human capital and regulatory modernization for the development of the energy sector. Taking into account the different impacts that climate change has generated, the PEN proposes the exploitation of other sources of energy in order to guarantee the reliability of the supply. Within these alternative sources of energy are: 'clean coal', non-conventional renewable energy, and small nuclear power plants.
