Law on Altering Energy Consumption Patterns

legislation type Legislative
Passed in 2011
This Law establishes the general information and definitions, policies and major guidelines, structure and organisations, criteria and standards for energy consumption.

It follows the Communicated Policy from the Supreme Leader on Consumption Patterns of 2010, which called for a change in the culture of consumption, promotion of a culture of thrift and frugality, fight against wastefulness, and promotion of productivity and efficiency. According to the Policy, this change of consumption patterns requires the use of cultural and educational capacities, promoted through public education, training programs at various levels, and an emphasis on accountable indicators.

It calls for the improvement of energy efficiency in power plants, industries, in the transport sector, and in Buildings buildings. This improvement should be promoted through the establishment of energy standards and labelling, financial incentives, among other mechanisms. The Law aims to reduce energy intensity by half in 2020.


  • Reduce energy intensity by half by 2020 against a 2010 baseline
