National Renewable Energy Programme (2005-2020)

Passed in 2005
The National Renewable Energy Programme was approved by the Parliament to increase the adoption of renewable energy in the energy system, improve the structure of power supplies, and promote renewable energy in off-grid settlements to ensure ecological balance and improve economic efficiency. The Programme is being implemented in two stages: the first stage from 2005-2010 and second stage from 2011-2020.

It aims to promote reliable, independent and effective operation of centralised energy grids and regional power supply systems by increased use of renewable energy. Another objective of this Programme is to provide power to all distant settlements, which require a significant amount of resources to be connected to the centralised power grid system, by introducing renewable energy generating systems. The Programme is related to the Energy Law and the 100,000 Solar Houses (Gers), which aims to provide rural areas with electricity through the utilisation of solar energy. It also establishes a target to increase the share of renewable energy, relative to total electricity production, reaching 3-5% by 2010 and 20-25% by 2020.
