Presidential Instruction 2/2008 - Regulation on Energy and Water Efficiency
Sets out instructions to Ministers, Governors and Mayors to implement energy and water efficiency in government offices. It optimises national policy on energy and water efficiency through establishment of the National Taskforce for Energy and Water Efficiency. The main tasks are:
- Research, plan and prepare policies, strategies and programmes for energy and water efficiency, including energy conservation programme by taking into account that a) most national energy and water are supplied with a subsidy, b) tighten the non-essential use of energy and water use by ensuring it reflects the economic price, c) ensuring the price of water and energy for industry reflects the true economic cost, d) all government offices should take steps to improve energy and water efficiency.
- Monitoring and reporting these activities to the President.
The instruction works towards mainstreaming climate change, by establishing that all government offices should observe energy efficiency - lighting, AC, electrical equipment, official vehicle and other buildings, and water efficiency - in all activities that use water.
